Early Spring Wildflower Videos

These are some of my favorite plants. They flower at a time of year most would consider insanely early. Some can be found blooming while there is still snow melting on the ground. They flower when bees might not even be awake or abundant and yet they do it anyway. They demonstrate that pollination doesn't require a beehive to happen. Many of the flowers probably aren't visited more than a dozen times and seeing bees working them is an uncommon sight. These are the tulips and daffodils of North America and it's insulting that almost no one plants let along recognizes them.

These videos are brought to you by SeaOtterSoup's youtube channel. I hope to contribute some of my own this spring.
