I love spring ephemerals! These are the little beauties that populate the forest floor early in the spring…they live their entire life cycle in the two weeks before the trees leaf out. Here are the ones I’ve seen this week. Seeing them each year is like greeting old friends…I have to see all my favourite species! And I only have two weeks in which to do it.
I’m quite enamored with their brief little lives…and their ephemeral beauty.
