First day of spring!
Despite this stubborn winter, that just keeps leaving and returning, some of the woodland wildflowers, the early spring ephemerals, are beginning to show themselves at Ijams.
One of the earliest bloomers every year is cutleaf toothwort (Dentaria laciniata). Look for it along the trails at the Homesite as well as North Cove Trail and River Trail.
