About Today’s Photo:

Foamflower (Tiarella cordifolia – a.k.a. Heartleaf Foamflower, False Miterwort, Coalwort, Coolwort, False Bitterroot) are in bloom now, part of the “second wave” of native wildflowers after the first spring ephemerals. Look for it in shady woodland locations–it’s hard to miss!
