I love this time of year, when every day in the garden is a new adventure, when it seems I step into a different garden every day. Yesterday, there was nothing but soil and mulch there. Today, I can see the emerging leaves, and tomorrow there might be a bud. Despite the vagaries of the weather, the little native wildflowers do their thing pretty much on schedule.
In addition to the Sanguinaria candensis shown above, the other woodland wildflowers sprouting in my garden include: my favorite, Thalictrum/Anemonella thalictroides 'Rosea',
Both the Ziza aurea
and the Geum triflorum are semi-evergreen but are now putting on new growth.
Even sooner, the sharped-leaved hepatica (Hepatica nobilis var. acuta) will be in bloom.
