The Cruellest Month

T. S. Eliot's long poem, The Waste Land, published way back in 1922,  describes April appropriately and accurately. I think we in the northeast can all relate

"April is the cruellest month, breeding

Lilacs out of the dead land, mixing

Memory and desire, stirring

Dull roots with spring rain."

Veratrum viride

Goodyera oblongifolia, in the orchid family
