Many have risen...
... but few have budded.
(Virginia Bluebells, Mertensia virginica.)
Shy ones have been spotted, but their lips are sealed.
(Trailing Trillium, Trillium decumbens.)
Mouthy little things, they'll soon be chewing the scenery everywhere you look.
(Toothwort, Cardamine sp.)
Tired of worn winter clothing, some are already sprouting new duds.
(Stoneseed, Lithospermum tuberosa.)
Still sleeping, but last year's faded poster marks the spot of exciting future installments.
(Foamflower, Tiarella cordifolia.)
