Jeffersonia dubia. The leaves on this twin leaf are especially red from cool night temperatures, it makes a wonderful contrast with the blue flowers.

So pleased that a lot of the native plants I collected last year have started to re-emerge. Geum, Geranium, Anemone are all visible above. A lot of orchids just starting to poke up too.
