May apples and trilliums have not yet flowered, but their unique foliage is popping up.
If you only have access to prairies, there are some early flowers there, too. Pasqueflower is in full bloom right now, with its purple flowers and fuzzy stems. This is always one to which I look forward; Leopold's quotations makes it seem significant to me. I know I quote him each year at this time, but I'll still remind you of this passage from ASCA: "For us of the minority, the opportunity to see geese is more important than television, and the chance to find a pasque-flower is a right as inalienable as free speech."
Prairie Smoke is also starting to bloom!
Also... the first tick of the season was seen a week and a half ago, but they're out in full force now. I pulled several off kids today.
