SILVERBELL COVE

Carolina silverbell is a shy tree, hiding in the understory. In April, lines of bell-shaped blossoms dangle under slender, gently bowed limbs whose emerging leaves help hide the delicate beauty of those pearly white flowers. Next to Lake Jocassee, in the back of a wide, sweeping cove, silverbells bloom. The trees shelter a myriad of botanical wonders: mayapples twirling up the hillside, a blanket of blue cohosh, clustered black snakeroot, bloodroot, and trillium in such numbers a single footstep would threaten to crush delicate seedlings. Silverbells only thrive where soil is rich, ground is moist, and air is clean. Like me, they do not prefer city living. ~K
