Between Storms?

This might have been another one of those between-storm moments, but I took a short hike on the Feather River College nature trail this afternoon and found the Wood Violets, Viola lobata, popping up through the carpet of dried pine needles and oak leaves.  On the way back to my car, my heart sunk at the freshly mowed lawn.  That is, until I discovered many clever plants had managed to bloom below the level of the blades.  That included some nice little fungi, Chick Weed, Spring Whitlow Grass, and a possible Meadow Foam.  I'll post some photos of these other plants in a little while.  And, I'll savor them through the next storm.
