First Spring Wildflower

I saw the first wildflowers of the spring this weekend while hiking locally. I'm sure there are more at lower elevations, but I was pleased to find these nearby, and such a nice grouping in various stages of unfolding.
For more signs of spring (or fall in southern parts of the world), visit My World Tuesday.

  6. These are the sorts of wildflowers one wants to have around. They look so sweet and fresh peeking out from the brown foliage of last winter.

  13. Well - you captured my favorite early spring wildflower, Al - the Pasque! They look so delicate but are so hardy!

  14. Even the color is delicate looking - but it does look as though these flowers had to work their way through some of Winter's leavings.

    Thank you for visiting -- and I will be in CO this summer! I hope your visit is in August when we just might have some sunshine up here.

  20. That's a beautiful wildflower! That's one of the things I so love about spring-- seeing a whole lot of wildflowers growing beautifully! Unfortunately, Spring isn't too friendly to us right now and that's my kind of world in this entry: Our WORLD of Wintry Spring

    Hope to see you when you get a chance! ;-)
