Skunk Cabbage in Forestville Spring/mud seep. Skunks survived the storm well and are poking thru nicely.

Hepatica.  The Hepatica are back after the snow, but many did take a hit from the storm.

Hepatica hanging it's flower heads after our 3 day ice/snow/ice storm.  Checked the Hepatica today after the storm, and most are flattened or still under some snow.  I saw the one shown in this photo before the storm and it look like it was tough enough to make it.

Hepatica.  The first of the spring wildflowers for us is usually the Hepatica.  We saw the first one this year on April 8th.  Last year saw a very snowy and cold April and the Hepatica did not bloom until the 29th.  2017 the Hepatica bloomed on the 4th of April.
