First Fawn Lily

This morning while volunteering at the Salem Audubon Nature Reserve in West Salem I spotted my first Fawn Lily of the season.  I always delight in finding them, I think my mother left me with the impression that they were special. There is something about the delicate petals of the flower appearing magically out of the dead ground of winter that indeed grab a persons attention.  The unique shiny mottled leaves also add to a fresh appearance. If you are out hiking during the next few weeks, keep an eye out for them.
