After the rain, the first sign of Spring

On our sleety cold dog walk this afternnoon, I turned up this little beauty. A Wurmbea dioica as a treat. They are said said to be an early sign of warmer weather.

Fun fact: Early Nancies are Dioecious, meaning each plant is either male or female (although there are plenty of variations in between, with some plants being hermaphroditic and some sporting a flower or two with both parts).

One thought on “After the rain, the first sign of Spring”

  1. Lovely find Mimflip of a beautiful little flower. I do love these tiny orchid-like flowers, often trodden on in parks. Apparently this flower does mark the beginning of Spring as one of the first flowering late August, so it is a little early as you said. Though it may want to go back in the ground after this blizzard-like weather this week as the August winds kick in.
