First Flowers of Spring 2016!

Happy floral Friday! It's exciting to see the first signs of spring, even though it's still winter here in Maryland. These pretty yellow flowers were popping up through fallen leaves in the woods.

I think these are called snowdrops. I've only ever seen them facing downward (like the two on the left) so seeing one facing upward was an extra treat.

These pale lavendar crocuses were sprouting up in tiny bunches here and there too.

It was great to see a honeybee feasting on the fresh flowers.

These two yellow flowers haven't managed to throw off the top leaf yet but I thought it looked like a cozy flower cave. We've got more cold coming before it's truly spring but it's nice to see flowers already blooming in nature.

I hope, wherever you are, that you are safe and warm. Thank you for visiting! May God bless you!
