Time is Short

Right now, there's a small spot in the back of our hollow that is completely covered with Celandine Poppies (Stylophorum diphyllum). If it wasn't for our trail, you couldn't walk through the patch without stepping on them. They last fairly long compared to some wildflowers, but soon enough the time for all spring ephemerals will be over and the poppies will be gone. That's the way it is with wildflowers; you only get so many chances to spend time together.
