    Coincidentally, I found our first blooming Common Blue Violet on 3/1. I knew where to look for this particular specimen. It grows in a microclimate created by a south-facing rock face — actually growing out of a crack in the rock — and always blooms a week or so ahead of it’s ground-dwelling kin.

    I love having those special places like that, Marvin. I’ve got a particular spot I check for the first Columbine of the season. However, I found another spot this year with even earlier blooms; a bit harder to reach. (Sorry I took a year to respond!)
