Spring Beauty (Claytonia virginica)
Woohoo, it's Spring, Happy Spring!

We had a delightful hike in Spring Grove Cemetery today.  It was such beautiful poetic justice: in Spring Grove, we saw the first spring beauty flowers, on the first day of Spring!  I couldn't believe how many flowers are blossoming right now.  The spring ephemerals are out.  They're called that because they only blossom for a short time, then they're gone.  So catch 'em quick!

I just couldn't wait to share these wonders.  So, here they are for your viewing pleasure:

The first Trout Lily (white) and the last Winter Aconite (yellow) (Erythronium albidum, Eranthis hyamelis)

Siberian Squill (Scilla siberica)
I hope this inspires you to get out in the woods and take a hike!
