AS IF THEY SIMPLY CANNOT WAIT ANY LONGER, the list of things starting to color up and open this cold, wet spring is accelerating–no matter whether the weather lifts its pall. From spike winterhazel (above) to the first of the Corydalis and Primula, here comes the start of full-on spring. A slideshow of today’s bright spots.
Simply click the first thumbnail to start the slides, then toggle from image to image using the arrows on your keyboard, or the ones beside the captions. Don’t forget to check the list of full stories about some of these plants just below the slides, to learn more about favorites. Enjoy.
Oh, and P.S.–Yes, I know the blue cohosh, or Caulophyllum thalictorides, above and in the show isn’t blooming yet, but you have to give it credit for those amazing stems and leaves. Talk about amazing anthocyanins!
