Spring Beauty or Springbeauties (Claytonia virginica)

springbeauties-01
(Spring Beauty - 01) A spring beauty can be identified by its long narrow leaves which spring forth near the ground around the central stock upon which the beauty of the flowers bloom in early spring.  The flower of the spring beauty is only about 1/2 inch across, or when viewed at 800 X 600 it's about 1/3 the size of the ones pictured.   Springbeauties are another example of the glory of God's creation for all of us to enjoy and protect.
