Footsteps of Spring, Sanicula arctopoides

This month's flower has such a wonderful common name especially for this time of the year.

You'll find these lovely perennial herbs along the west coast of North America.

They belong to the same family as carrots and parsnips, and grow in low patches along the grow - sort of resembling footsteps of yellow against the background.

Numerous tiny five-petal flowers grow tightly together forming an umbrella-shaped structure called an umbel at the top of the stems.
