Draba Verna, a.k.a. Whitlow Grass
Yes, this plant is sitting in a tea spoon! They’re all over around work, growing in the pathetic sandy edges of the grassy spaces, blooming by the thousand and getting stepped on. I carried this around the office today, showing people that spring is here.
I don’t know yet if Whitlow grass is native or not. The USDA says it isn’t, but wikipedia says it might be.
