Flower for the Day Spring Beauty 4-18

Spring Beauty (Clayton virginica) is a miniature native perennial that has been blooming for several weeks and is a sure 
sign of spring. It literally carpets uncut lawns. Here it is on a churchyard lawn.

To really enjoy miniatures you must join them at their level.

When you do get close to spring beauty you can the pink/purple veins and a yellow center.

             We should not mind
             So small a flower
             Except it quiet bring
             Our little garden that we lost
             Back to the lawn again.  ……
                    Emily Dickinson
