Spring has sprung here, too.  What was exciting was our secret meadow of 
native Fritillaria biflora.  My daughter and I took the back way to our 
class today,  and found the blooms in this intriguing colony.  No water 
during summer, baking rocky red clay most of the year, and there were at 
least a couple of hundred plants at their peak of bloom!  Shiny 
chocolate colored blooms about 6-8 inches tall.    Woo-Hoo!!!
