Henbit here too. Hilarious! I also saw some Spring Beauties (Claytonia virginica). Wish I would see some dandelions. The bees love them and so do I. Yummy good spring food.

I have 4 different flowers blooming already. Here they are:

Thumb of 2021-03-21/caters/ebdf61
Dandelions, few and far between as of right now

Thumb of 2021-03-21/caters/e6a7b3
Crocuses, so pretty, with those translucent petals it kind of looks like they are glowing in the sun

Thumb of 2021-03-21/caters/f8cfc7
Clover, I see a lot of this in the shady grass and very little in the grass that is in the sun, so I wonder, does clover not like full sun?

Thumb of 2021-03-21/caters/5d32ef
Purple Irises, a few dense clusters of them

Lovely, caters! I find clover growing all over at this time of year, as an understory plant, it gets sun in spring before the trees leaf out. BUT, your plant isn't clover at all. It looks like Hairy Bittercress which also seems to like growing everywhere at this time of year! Smiling

What? But the leaves look exactly like that of clover, 3, occasionally 4 lobes. And there are types of clover with white flowers too.

Cinda, you have very lovely spring wildflowers! Lovey dubby
Could the last one be harbinger of spring, Erigenia bulbosa?
