I blog about the ecology and natural history of wildflowers in the eastern United States. Plants currently in bloom are usually discussed, with an accompanying photograph or two.

We saw our first hummingbird this year on the first day of April. While it was visiting our feeder, another good source of sugar water (actually nectar) for it are the flowers of red buckeye (Aesculus pavia) which are currently in bloom in our yard.
