|Bloodroot - Sanguinaria canadensis|
|False Rue Anemone - Enemion biternatum|
And to make the name thing more confusing, False Rue Anemone is often called Isopryum, which used to make sense, because it was in the genus Isopryum, but some time in recent history it's been moved to the genus Enemion. And by the way, I hate typing the word "Anemone" for some reason.
|Wake Robin - Trillium erectum|
|Yellow Trout Lily - Erythronium americanum|
|White Trout Lily - Erythronium albidum|
|Sharp-lobed Hepatica - Hepatica acutiloba|
|Virginia Bluebells - Mertensia virginica|
|Mayapple - Podophyllum peltatum|
At the shelter, they had little leaf cutouts that you could write a poem on, and hang on their "poet-tree" (I thought it looked more like a "poet-shrub". Adele (age 4 1/2) spontaneously composed the following poem, with Sara transcribing:
The leaves are falling,
The trees are standing up.
All of the flowers are blooming
in the summer in 2's and 3's.
(the owls and the birds are flying all around)
Oh, oh how beautiful it is.
