      This garden is about 5 miles (8k) from my house. It is a conservation garden and part of the local university (UNC-Chapel Hill). As close as it is I still missed getting there for the trilliums and other early spring ephemerals.

      I had never noticed this flower before seeing it today at a public garden. The sign puts it in this family: Bunchflower Family – Melanthiaceae (formerly in Lilaceae).
