Round-lobed Hepatica:
A Tribute

By William T. Hathaway
Round-lobed Hepatica (Hepatica americana)

On this glorious site, in a hidden woodland ravine, I am again reminded:

“…This is the golden treasure they know they can take with them out of the world when they go, for it makes up the wealth of the heart and soul, and it cannot be left to heirs for it must be gained, if gained at all, each for himself.  It is not transferable by will, or gift, or by the keys to strongboxes.”

— J. Otis Swift
