Moss Phlox: Spring Prairie Snow

Many early prairie wildflowers are tiny. Perhaps their ability to hide from creatures and the elements helps them to survive, but still, their modesty surprises me.

Moss Phlox grew on the hillside near the Prairie Crocus, its white flowers almost invisible (to me...), like unmelting snowflakes, deep in the dry grasses.
