Wild oats in bloom near a local beaver pond

Wild oats (a.k.a. sessile bellwort) are in bloom. These diminutive plants grow in colonies. They spread asexually by means of long underground stolons (think rhizomes) with most plants in a colony not flowering. There’s a prodigious colony up past the beaver pond along the old Mailbox trail.
