Sharp-Lobed Hepatica
Hepatica nobilis
In this yard, the Bloodroot, Hepatica, and Trout Lilies are the first to show up each spring. Hepaticas are small. But it's always fun to look for them as one of the first signs of the new season.
I think the environment should be put in the category of our national security. Defense of our resources is just as important as defense abroad. Otherwise what is there to defend?
