Another early arrival

Small-flowered Woodland Star Small-flowered Woodland Star, Lithophragma parviflorum.

The first bloom of this flower that I encountered last year was on April 7th. They are quite small, the flower measuring about 1/4 inch across. They bloom early here and I have found some in bloom all summer long in various areas.
