In Langdon Park the wildflowers are starting a beautiful display.  Trillium {T. erectum} is in bloom in many places along the path by the Baker River with red flowers above its three leafy bracts.  Also called Wake-Robin and Stinking Benjamin because the flowers smell like rotting meat.  In far greater numbers are the large masses of Trout Lily {Erythronium americanum} that are beginning to bloom with yellow flowers held above the mottled green foliage.  Also called Dog Tooth Violet and Yellow Adder’s Tongue. Back on campus, at the northwest corner of Hall Hall is a group of Judd’s Viburnum {V. x juddi} that has clusters of red flower buds that will open to very fragrant white flowers.  Our blooming dates are still well over two weeks ahead of last year.
