Warmer weather has finally arrived and with it the early spring-flowering bulbs. These so-called minor bulbs are such a welcome sight after our Midwest winters.
Crocus seiberi ‘Tricolor’ around Sutphin Fountain.
The three colors in ‘Tricolor’.
Snowdrops (Galanthus nivalis) still make me happy no matter how many years I’ve seen their spring show.
Winter aconite (Eranthis hyemalis) are very happy little bulbs.
Even on a gray day their bright yellow color absolutely glows.
The honey bees love them. Look at all the pollen on the bees leg.
The bees tended to take flight just as I was ready to snap the photograph.
Now get your butt to the IMA and enjoy this glorious weather.
