Round-lobe hepaticas

The round-lobe hepaticas in Martha Hitchiner’s Michigan backyard are the first wildflowers to bloom every year. The small flowers are common in spring woods throughout much of the eastern United States and Canada. She got very close to photograph this colorful scene, using a Nikon D200.
