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.

  1. Spring will not be as dramatic this year for us, but for the plants they are ready for action! Thanks for sharing this pic. In DC the daffodils and cherry blossoms already are making appearances!
