The little plants known as Bulbocodium vernum and Merendera trigyna are
beginning to bloom today. The former is also known as Colchicum vernum, and
the latter is also known as Bulbocodium trigynum.

From a distance, they look like frail crocus. Also in bloom - still in bloom
- is Colchicum kesselringii. This has been blooming for over a month.

Montgomery County, Maryland, USA, USDA zone 7, where each day in this
unseasonably/unreasonably warm winter is bringing out more blooms: I hope
they didn't forget their jackets!
