Yesterday we went for a walk in the woods to see what was up and blooming. Last Sunday there were tons of hepatica blooms. This week the hepatica was done, leaving just those odd yet beautiful leaves.
There were banks upon banks of trout lily, and spring beauty was everywhere. Next week those two will still be blooming, but there will also be geranium (maybe) and mayapple. The jack in the pulpit is just starting.
The woods are getting very lush. It would be easy to miss the tiny yellow and purple sweet violets so close to the ground. The well worn deer trails will become much less visible in a week or two.
