Project 365 -The May Apple

I spent a good deal of time today crawling around on my belly today.  There are so many plants beginning to emerge.  Pushing their way up through the leaf liter I have been too lazy to rake up out of the garden.  Leaves and flower buds are unfolding, stretching, nodding to the rain that fell today.

The May Apples open like so many umbrellas, popping up and unfurling it's single sheltering leaf.  Later in the month, it will bloom, a single white flower, will  linger there for a bit, like a southern belle under her parisol on a lovely spring day.
