Early Days of Spring

First butterfly!

Dogwoods getting ready to bloom.

Some kind of cocoon thing on my berry branches.

This is either an anemone or a sorrel of some kind. I thought it was a wood anemone but those have five petals, these have four. 

I couldn't find anything that looked exactly like these in my guide books. 

They are very pretty, whatever they are.


  1. At first glance, I thought they looked like trout lilies, but they don't have enough petals for those, either. They are pretty, though, whatever they are.

  2. The cocoon thing interests me. I hope you will check back and see what comes out of it!

  3. Glad you were feeling better and able to get outside to capture these early blooms, Anita. We have several wildflowers that are completely volunteer and which are a mystery to me. Of course, I could check guidebooks, but was a bit too lazy to do that.

  4. Your flower looks like Toothwort. Love wildflowers.


I enjoy your comments and always appreciate the opportunity to visit the blogs of my readers. I hope you have a great day!
