Exciting March News!

In the Company of Plants and Rocks is hosting the March Berry Go Round -- please consider joining us at the carnival (details at end of post).  Here's an opportunity to get exposure for your blog, or to try plant blogging if you haven’t already.  And of course ... this is a very exciting time in the temperate latitudes of the Northern Hemisphere.  Spring is not far off.  Have you seen any harbingers?  Let us know!

I found one this morning:
A harbinger of spring -- Easter daisy cushion with young flower heads (white stuff is snow).
Last year, the Easter daisies were in flower by April in the Laramie Basin (southeast Wyoming, USA).  They might be earlier this year.  The flower heads certainly look like they're lusting to bloom!
Easter daisy, Townsendia exscapa.  Heads are less than 1 cm across.

More News!
February's Berry Go Round is up at Foothills Fancies: Bringing you Berries!  Check it out for some excellent phyto-reading.
