During this time of year even a dandelion is a welcome spot of color. We had our first dandelion while walking at the park with Luna. We had several firsts. The first Spring Beauties Claytonia virginica... They are popping up everywhere. They are forming little islands of pink in some lawns. If you are lucky you can see these little islands in the woods too.
The first vinca vine blooms...
Our first Rue Anomone Anemonella thalictroides. They are such dainty flowers. I just adore them when they burst into bloom. Come on sunshine.
And finally our first Prairie Trillium with some Dutchmans Breeches in front of it. There was some Dutchmans Breeches with buds. If we should get some sun in the next few days we will be inundated with blooms. Can anyone spare a few rays?
