For a very few days in the middle of March, we see these beauties.

They are hepatica, so named for their kidney shaped leaves that come up after the blooms die back.   

They come in pink, white and purple.   I like the purple ones best.  

Lily scouted all the regular places at just the right time to find them.  

They don't last long and they come a week or more before the rest of the wildflowers really get going.

  1. Oh I like those. They're so simple and pretty. I almost named my first child Hepatica.
