A Hopeful Sign of Spring

Spring has sprung—and she is so generous that she even let Old Man Winter stop by for another day or two…

Through the mud, a patch of lingering dirty snow, and the dead leaves left over from last fall…a delicate blue-purple flower unfurls. This photo of lovely hepatica blossoms was taken by Land Trust member Ellie Shappirio at the Land Trust’s Sharon Hills preserve last spring.

(Thank you for sending this, Ellie!)
