Welcome Back, Spring

April 8, 2012
By Jeff Tome , Chautauqua Watershed Conservancy

The warmth of this early spring is sinking into the earth like a hot pad on old bones. The cold earth warms and stirs with life. Wildflowers have been waiting for the warmth to send leaves and blossoms shooting into the air. Bloodroot has sent out big white blossoms with leaves curled lovingly around the stem. Delicate pink spring beauties close up against the cold nights. Hoary Bittercress covers the yard and garden with tiny white flowers that will later turn into explosive seeds and take over if left unchecked.
