This tree is about 200 miles south of the twin cities. It was blooming on Saturday. Get ready for blooms by the end of the week in Minnesota. Also get ready for many photographs of flowers blooming. 🙂
There will be leaves on the trees in a week or so. It always seems like magic.
According to the date stamps on several photos I have taken over the years these little flowers should be blooming in the woods in and around St. Paul. They like sunshine and grow in clumps. They start blooming before the leave open on the trees. I am looking forward to hunting for wildflowers this weekend.
Not bad for a photo taken with my phone. I can remember the first phone I had with a built in camera. It wasn’t much of a camera.
These are hard to miss because everything around them is still brown. I found these on the sunny south side on an alley on a strip of dirt along a retaining wall. They are small but hard to miss.
