The Good, The Beautiful and the Ugly (and Bad)

Oak trees wearing their dangling flowers (although they are still closed up quite tightly and not really blooming yet).

The pure white flowers of the trillium grace pristine woodland areas and gardens like mine, while...

Garlic mustard flowers add their white hue to areas more disturbed or unhealthy. As you'd expect with an invasive species that opens early, stays green all winter, and emits fungicide into the soil, it grows in great clumps, monocultures of weeds beneath the shade, waiting for someone to come and pull them before they go to seed.
