Hepatica's First Bloom

I am happy to report our first Hepatica blooming in the woods today. It's the Sharp-Lobed Hepatica (Hepatica acutiloba), to be exact. These early spring wildflowers are common up on the Cumberland Plateau, but not so much around Nashville, so I'm happy we enjoy having a small population of them as neighbors. Also in bloom today are Spring Beauties, Toothwort, and Harbinger-of-Spring. A few trilliums are emerging but not yet blooming. Happy spring, y'all.
