Spring wildflowers in Harrington Park

This is a wild geranium

These beautiful wildflowers were observed and photographed in the last few days while I was walking on sidewalks by woods on Central Ave in Old Tappan, Loh’s Place, and Blanche/Pondside Park.

 

 

 

 

 

This is Garlic Mustard (alliara)

The same wildflowers can be seen by the edge of the woods bordering Lafayette Ave, Hackensack (woods to the tennis courts), Beechwood Park… anywhere there is some sun (and no herbicides have been applied).

Search “wildflower” for more information &other photos of local spring blooms over the years.

Enjoy photos of other New Jersey spring wildflowers on the Native Plant Society of New Jersey website (they have a Bergen chapter—with local activities): http://www.npsnj.org/photo_galleries/photo_gallery_spring.html.

Another interesting and informative site is: http://uswildflowers.com/stateref.php?State=NJ
