Spring flowers progress. Spring beauties are past peak Virginial bluebells are nearing peak – literally blue as far as the eye can see in some places.
Vioelts are purple, white, yellow and a few red. White trout lillies, toothworts, dutchmen’s breeches, and rue anemonies. Yellow buttercups have started and bellworts are not quite blooming. Bloodroots have finished.
Life can be a Blue Zone if only you look for it.
