I could hardly believe my eyes yesterday when I saw this trout lily getting ready to blossom!
It’s one thing to find skunk cabbages in bloom in mid-March – heck, they’ll bloom when there’s snow on the ground, generating their own heat to melt it – but trout lilies are not quite such early bloomers.
Things are so advanced that not only are the skunk cabbages flowering, but they are already sending up leaf shoots!
These warm days it can be tempting to leave windows and doors open, but one must beware the entry of varmints if one isn’t vigilant!
Spring is here. Happy Vernal Equinox, All!
