"First Flowers" mini-project

I'm starting a mini-project to document the first time each plant species flowers in my area. This includes both naturalized plants and landscape/garden plants, so long as the latter overwintered (and thus were affected by winter) or else were planted from seed. I am not including anything that was germinated inside (seed starts or plants purchased at a store) since they don't have as much of a story to tell about the winter. I am definitely including invasive species and other introduced species though.

I am only doing this in places I go nearly every day (home and the forest near where I work) so I don't miss things for very long.

If you would like to join in, please do! Just give the relevant observations the tag 'FirstFlowers'

Descrição

probably were planted at some point, 'naturalized' in that they come back from year to year without any particular care. I should probably divide them or something. These are the little dwarf variety that are maybe 6 inches tall. Didn't see any pollinators on them yet.

Hi Charlie, I love this idea. I keep trying to get better at identifying plants as they first show up and then watch how they develop.

I definitely find a lot of little seedlings and have no idea what they are, another fun use of iNaturalist is to document the little seedlings in a place you visit very often like your backyard, then come back and re document when they are bigger.
