Spring green has started
The other ephemerals are now in bloom and hepatic starts about the same time as snow trillium but the trillium has the earliest leaves, not counting the skunk cabbage whose flower is non-descript. With rain predicted for the weekend it will be a great time to get some shots with April showers and ephemerals. The next two weeks promise to be magical, not as raucous as migrating birds but equally impressive.
Technical: The leaf in the lower left corner shows the relative size of the trillium. I rarely shoot in midday light but the flowers are fully open only during that time.
