Photos: Single Spring Wildflower
As much as I love flowers, I despise digging in dirt. So much so that a couple years ago we replaced the hostas and daisies at my house with a rock garden. Don't worry, the perennials were adopted by my mom. Now we buy annuals to decorate a seasonal window box and flower pot instead of having to weed constantly.
When I noticed a pop of red in my lawn last Friday, I figured it was a candy wrapper. I ventured closer to pick it up and discovered it was a single spring wildflower ... that resembles an adorable miniature tulip. How did it grow there when I haven't ever seen any flowers like it in the neighborhood? Perhaps the fairies magically planted a bulb for me because they knew how strongly I was longing for spring to bloom!
