First I found a dandelion trying to bloom and then this wildflower or flowering grass blooming. It seems too cold, but perhaps the fallen leaves provide enough warmth to encourage blooming.

Dandelions galore, the poplar trees are beginning to leaf out and a lovely sky.

I was very excited to see some wildflowers in March. These are Draba verna or Early Whitlow Grass. These tiny white flowers have bifid petals and belong to the mustard family.

One lone chicory flower in the grass after the season has passed. Love the curly stamens, hairy petal edges and pollen waiting for the bees.

When places go wild, they are lovely to see.

All the other thistle flowers have gone to seed, but this one is beginning to bloom.

The last of the vervain flowers and a great song by the Traveling Wilburys.
