February Flora!

February 23, and we have non-native crocuses blooming and native wild leeks peeking up in our backyard.  Talk about your winter wonderland…

Note: the leeks link has a couple recipes.  It’s Nadia’s article in the newsletter of the Hawthorn Chapter of the Missouri Native Plant Society.

(The wild leek stock came from Missouri Wildflowers Nursery.  Check it out, because Merv sometimes has a small supply of these.)
