These lists, by no means, present all the plants in bloom at the time, but simply those within easy reach of Cleveland, certainly not more than ten miles away from the centre of the city, and gathered by amateurs.

When the hounds of spring are on winter's traces The mother of months in meadow and plain,

Fills the hollows and windy places With laughter of leaves and ripple of rain.

"Atlanta's Chorus," Swinburne.
