Dutchman’s breeches (Dicentra cucularia) are in full bloom right now, and the plants are finally spreading in my garden. And the rabbits didn’t eat the flowers this year—yet!

The sepals of flowering dogwood (Cornus florida) are beginning to enlarge, hinting of the beauty to come.

Spicebush (Lindera benzoin) has reached full bloom, its tiny yellow-green flowers lighting up the garden.
