Slippery Elm Seeds

Every spring I notice something different in the woods.   Probably because things come on differently every spring.   The weather is fickle and a properly timed cool stretch slows things down so that even I can't miss certain things.

These are slippery elm [Ulmus rubra] seeds.   The bark of this tree is often used medicinally, to aid in the healing of digestive troubles.
