April, part two

 Shooting stars (Dodecatheon pulchellum) in bloom

Grassland saxifrage (Saxifraga integrifolia), also in bloom

I transplanted several clumps of these two plants from a threatened spot last year.  I wasn't sure if they would survive, but I put them in exactly the same sort of habitat they were in, and I was happy to see that not only were they blooming this year, but they had spread.

Meanwhile, in the north part of the prairie, Nine-leaf lomatiums (Lomatium triternatum) that have taken 4-5 years to get mature are at last putting out some nice blooms this year.  Many camas are coming up in this area, so I'm hoping that I really get to see a camas bloom this year...
