Spring is Finally Here!

Today’s post features some very early woodland wildflowers that I captured during a hike last week at Ha Ha Tonka State Park (Missouri). Being early, I wasn’t sure I’d find anything yet, but I did find one wildflower blooming and a couple of very early growths of other woodland wildflowers. I’m not totally confident of my identifications (very small plants, plus I can’t seem to find my all-important wildflower identification guide!), but my best guesses are:

False Rue Anemone:

Small, white woodland wildflower

Very small Columbine plants, growing out of the rock walls:

Columbine wildflower

Very small Trillium (I found some maroon-colored trilliums here last year):

Trillium wildflower

I’m planning on another hike, either later this week or early next week, to check on the progress of these, and to see if any new ones show up!
