First Spring Flowers at Yasnaya Polyana

As soon as the snow melted and the April sun warmed the southern edges of the forest, the first flowers appeared from under the dried-up grass. Yellow flowers of coltsfoot, buttercup ficaria and anemone, variable lungwort, and tender corydalis – they all sought the warmth of spring before the forest became  covered with thick green foliage. In front of the Tolstoy House, a carpet of Siberian squills began blooming.
