One more flower that's easy to miss is the Wavyleaf Dandelion (Nothocalais cuspidata). My friend CG told me about this one, blooming on the trail, right above the Florida Dr parking lot. It looks like a regular old dandelion at first, but has a more golden color and the leaves are long, thin and pointed, not like the ragged leaves you see in the yard variety.
A few daisies are starting to come out, Cutleaf and Easter Daisy, and a couple vetches, Ground Plum and Early Purple Vetch, but there should be a lot more by next week. A few Chiming Bells are blooming, too.
Looks like a warm weekend coming up, the snow, rain and warm sun should make for a Green Mountain. Get out and enjoy it!
