Here’s a sweet diary entry for today by Canadian Naturalist Charles Joseph Sauriol from 1938 shared by the Toronto Archives on their fabulous twitter feed - which is a wonderful thing to follow:
"For a few minutes this morning I fumbled around my Wild Flower garden... Little points which will soon be Bloodroots. Cautious little down covered stems and buds that will later become Hepaticas. Narrow leaves the forerunners of spring beauty."
