Bright flower tells residents spring is here

There is one telltale sign that spring is almost here for residents of the Delmarva Peninsula. A little flower, which is called henbit, covers vast fields with its distinct bright purple color, according to Delmarva Now.

Henbit is a weed that is in the mint family, and it sticks out from other plants due to its square stem. It can be found on Delmarva, which includes parts of Delaware, Virginia and Maryland, right before the trees and other flowers bloom.

The news source explains that the immensity of this spring flower creates an illusion of a bright purple carpet spread out on the fields. As the spring turns into summer, some of these fields will grow wild blackberries.

Flowers continue to be highlighted this spring in this area. According to the Delmarva Town Crier, the Second Annual Flower and Flea Market Festival is scheduled for the first week in May. This festival displays different spring flowers from the area, like the henbit, and may inspire some to buy and send flowers for Mother's Day, which is the same weekend as the festival.
