Not Quite Flowers
Two warm and sunny days in a row, and I got carried away. Actually went in search of wildflowers. On the FRC campus, I didn't find any truly wild flowers blooming, but spring is definitely in the air and this friendly slug seemed as pretty as a flower to me. And the new leaves of a Pine Violet, Viola lobata, were a most promising sign. I think we'll see the first violets bloom within another week. Barring another snow storm, of course.
