Folks shoud be able to get some nice flower walks in in Cherokee County  over the next several days.  We took a walk on the yellow trail at Boling Park today and found trout lilies (Erythronium umbillicatum) in great bloom, and a bloom that should continue for a while as there were more in bud than in bloom.  

Round-lobed hepatica (Anemone americana) also was beginning to bloom, with about a dozen in bloom and many in bud.

Toothworts (Cardamine angustata) were just starting to bud well.  None had open flowers bus a handfull were starting to show the petals.

Surprisingly, the buckeyes (Aesculus sylvatica) were already leafing out - surprisingly early and potentially bad news if there is a late cold snap - I have not noticed them leafinf out this early at this location prviously.

Also - the nomenclature above follows Weakley.
