Hepatica in bloom
Our native Hepatica aculiloba are in bloom on south facing slopes in Thetford Center, VT. This means spring is really here. Also butterflies are flitting around and snowdrops and early (snow)crocus are blossoming. In Thetford, the quite early double yellow daffodil-'Van Sion' or 'Telamonius Plena' is just about to bloom--I think this is the name of the commonly grown short double daffodil found in many old plantings all over the country. The flowers are variable and have alot of green in them- I've seen photographs calling what looks like it 'Double Campernelle' but this is what I think it is.
