These are not the earliest white flowers in the woods. Those are skinnier and more prolific, but they do not wear hoodies. These are not the smelly relatives of onion and garlic that look like aliens from a primitive Sixties tv show either. Danger, Will Robinson!
Every spring the flowers pictured below dot the slope of Rustic Park and smell strongly of onions. They seem out of this world, but are the beginnings of soups and stews and primitive earthy foods. Looks can be deceiving.
Thank heaven for easier IDs like fleabane daisies.
