Woodland Flowers

Despite the 36 degree windy weather this is what’s in bloom today in my woodland garden:

from left to right in the top row are: Sanguinaria ( bloodroot), Trout Lily, Liver lobed Helatica.

The bottom photo is a pulmonary – lungwort.

Enjoy springtime in New England. The Pulmonary blooms for several weeks and has those distinctive spotted leaves. The Trout lilly is an ephemeral it’s stray bronze and green leaves are gone by the middle of May and totally disappears. The Hepatica pulls the same stunt. If you mis the ephemerals you’ll just have to start watching around the end of March. Their bloom time is variable each year. Near the Hepatica the Trilliums have sprouted, but there won’y be flowers for a few weeks.
