Spring bounty, part two

In the same area where I dug the spring beauty and avalanche lily corms, I found quite a bit of waterleaf (Hydrophyllum capitatum) which while not as abundant as the other two, also has an edible, starchy easily harvested root. Crunchy and juicy and not at all unpleasant raw, the roots are more easily digested when cooked, so should be boiled if possible.

The result of a few minutes of digging!

All three species, growing together
