|Glade cress- Linda Ellis|
Linda found a trout lily, Erythronium americanum, that same day. It is another March bloomer, two green leaves usually with dull purple blotches support a single long stalked flower with lanceolate (lance-like) yellow petals. Hers were on a glade which receives the sun's warmth far earlier than our deep valley where we still hadn't seen the leaves come up for another week. Finally they have proclaimed spring in the valley.
