trout lily handwriting

This premature spring has convinced the first grade girls they should really be writing "in cursive", so they are making looping nonsensical signatures. The five year olds are struggling to master printing on lined paper, working out which letters are tall, and which hang down below the line. Candy canes and fish hooks get larger and larger. The three year olds are documenting life in invented script and writing their names in all caps. Remembering my childhood fascination with my dad's drafting block print lettering.
This is a new flower for me. The description of handwriting skills brings back memories. Somedays, I REALLY miss teaching.

@cjwhite Trout lilies are named for their fish-shaped, mottled leaves. I think they prefer shady spots.
