I think one special aspect of spring is the ephemeral nature of the flowers. Scylla, so prolific just a week ago have almost all died off. Daffodils have bloomed and tulips in the sunnier spots have opened. But it is the forest flowers I love - the flowers that belong here, that have not been brought from other places. The trilliums blanket the forest floor, blooming while the sunshine still reaches them, before the leaves open and shade the ground.
Dogtooth violets with their downward drooping faces add their sunny colour. Summer flowers last, though blossoms die off, more grow to take their places. Spring flowers have a short season - take time to find them for they are not here long.
