First spring wildflowers blooming

I noticed my midland fawn lilies are blooming. Today I saw the first of the spring beauties beginning to bloom in my yard. The hazelnut catkins have been blooming for a few weeks now. Spring has finally arrived. Even the speedwell (a weed with blue flowers) is blooming.
I went for hike in the woods at the governors and saw the the dutchmans breeches are coming up as are the white fawn lilies. THe midland fawn lilies are blooming nicely in the woods. The honeysuckle unfortunately is leafing out now too. I cleared quite a bit of honeysuckle today, should give the spring ephemerals a chance to grow this spring.
