Carolina Spring Beauty - Wide-leaved Spring Beauty - Claytonia caroliniana by 


The Spring Beauty wildflower is common and one of the earlier to bloom. In southern areas they can be seen in March while farther north May could be the best time. We here in Pennsylvania have them in April – lovely carpets of delicate flowers that pop up in lawns, waste areas, literally anywhere the sun can hit and the flowers can take a foothold.

People have been said to eat the tubers. I prefer not to dig and disturb wildflowers unless there is a very good reason – development, for instance.

This picture was taken April 20, 2013, in Green Lane, Pennsylvania, USA. You can find more info here:

I love nature, science, poetry, prose, art, music – you name it! Now that I’m retired, time is mine to spend as I wish (pretty much), and I wish to take pictures of our natural world.

Bringing the outdoors in for others to see, especially those who may not get the opportunity to wander next to a pond, fish at the beach, or tramp in the woods, is a pleasure. I hope to build a window to the wonders of nature that fill our everyday lives.
