FEB 28, 2012, along the east branch of Indian Creek, Morris Park, Philadelphia.
Photo by Brian Solomon. This Claytonia virginica was spotted in bloom on yet another unusually warm February day.
It is nice to see the flower, but it is worrysome that this is too early. Daffodils are blooming in the alley. Crocuses and snowdrops that have escaped out of cultivated yards into the natural woodlands are blooming as well.
It will be interesting to see how this spring unfolds.
