Mayapples in April

All that green underneath the trees in this picture are Mayapples, a prevalent wildflower in Northwest Indiana. Mayapples are named for the month that they flower and fruit and this year they are already flowering in early April.

In other years, early April would find the forest floor just as brown as in the foreground here, all over---the Mayapples shouldn't even be up yet.
