In years gone by, wild plum trees have been flower-budded or blooming by May 1, sugar maples have been flowering, and the lawn has been dotted with yellow dandelions.

This year, in spite of the warmth in the first days of May, spring plants were set back by the prolonged winter. This means that hikers for the Mothers Day wildflower walk may see flowers that are usually done blooming by May 13. People who would like to see and learn about the spring woodland wildflowers can join a naturalist on Mothers Day at 1 p.m. for a hike below the ledges at Ledge View Nature Center, W2348 Short Rd., Chilton.
People also may come May 12 for the Adventure Caveman Run and Wellness Day, a 5K run/walk through the woods and fields. Check out the vendors and exhibitors and get some exercise at a beautiful time of the year.
