Early Spring

Spring is upon us and based on the flowers of leatherwood at least 26 days earlier than last year and 11 days earlier than 2010.  I was back in Illinois again this past weekend and the vast majority of spring ephemeral plants were up and flowering.  Here is a drawing of some of the action this time of year.  Three different looks at bloodroot (Sanguinaria canadensis).  Visit my blog to see some snapshots of this drawing in progress.
