What's blooming?

After the volunteers left Saturday and we cleaned up, I took a quick stroll through the woods to see what was blooming. All the spring flowers are still going strong, but I saw the first trillium, Trillium grandiflora, in bloom. Several other species have buds but no blooms yet.

While not a wildflower, anemone blanda is planted in the woods. See how the trout lily picks up the yellow in the anemone.

I had to post another shot because trout lilies (Erythronium americanum) are one of my favorite wildflowers.

The Virginia bluebells (Mertensia virginica) are just starting to bloom .

This is another non-native plant in the woods, Leucojum. This is the first bloom but soon there will be lots of blooms on the plant.
