Hi all,

Besides the Indiana and Illinois Trillium nivale up and flowering here, I 
found some T. sessile poking their noses out of the ground today. One patch 
of T. recurvatum are also above ground already.

The Galanthus are mostly past; a garden hybrid Primula cf. vulgaris is in 
flower; Fritillaria thunbergii is up in one spot and seems to have a flower 
bud, at long last. Fritillaria pallidiflora is starting to come up too. 
Lots of Iris reticulata cultivars have been in bloom the past week.

Narcissus Tete a Tete, Rijnveld's Early Sensation, obvallaris, February 
Gold, Little Beauty, and asturiensis 'Giant'.  Chionodoxa lucillae are in 
bloom everywhere.

Corydallis are coming up, and solida 'Beth Evans' and 'George P. Baker' are 
already in bloom. Corydalis paczoskii and C. kusnetzovii are in bloom.

Eranthus cilicia and Bulbocodium vernum are past.

So Spring is making progress here in central Indiana!
