Canada Anemone in bloom

Canada Anemone is a species common in wet forests and seasonal wetlands. They have multiple white blooms per plant and large, serrated leaves. Natives were aware of its medicinal properties, and often used it to stop bleeding and treat bug bites and other conditions.

Loons could be heard in the house with the windows closed this morning. Baltimore Oriole and American Robin were seen drinking from the pond, and Prairie Ninebark has started to bloom in the front yard.
