Some photos

May apples first bloomed May 19 -- and are still going strong.

Lily of the valley, peak bloom over the weekend. 

Birdsfoot violet.  This native is slightly later blooming than other violets, with a pale purple flower with yellow centers.  The leaves are totally unlike other violet leaves -- rather than being cordate, it is deeply lobed and feathery. 

Strawberry starting to form, 5/25.   

First spiderwort flowers, 5/26.

My mystery tree now that the leaves have fully leafed out.  I still don't know what it is. 

Finally, Virginia waterleaf flowers, 5/22.  I always thought these flowers looked like little fairytale crowns, that maybe a frog would wear.
