I snapped this photo while out on a springtime walk a few weeks ago. This flowering bulb is commonly called Glory of the Snow, although the snow was long gone by the time I noticed any in these parts.
A neighbor (thanks Barry!) gifted me this beautiful double-flowered bloodroot (Sanguinaria canadensis) earlier in the month and they recently flowered.
In early spring the Scilla bloom and I always make a point to get some pictures in the short time that they are around. As previously mentioned, they share a name with my maternal grandmother, although the spelling is different.
I went out for a walk yesterday and while we have had some warm and sunny days already, it was the first one that really felt like spring. One of my favorite spring blooms, the pasque flower was out. I’m so glad I caught them because they’ll be gone before I get a chance to go out walking again.
