After the warmest winter on record, signs of an early spring abound. I spotted this silverleaf nightshade last week, and according to noted naturalist, Frank S. Rose, author of “Mountain Wildflowers of Southern Arizona,” this wildflower blooms from May through October. Looks like this wildflower didn’t get the word!

Shouldn’t be told when to bloom

Its feelings explode.
