What's that plant?

I found these blooming in our woods on Sunday. I found them in two colors; white and pink.




Hint: Springtime surprises like these are beautiful, are they not?

  1. We just love spring flowers! B spotted trout lilies and Dutchman's breeches; I almost stepped on some spring beauties today hanging laundry outside. :)

  2. The kids have seen all kinds of stuff in the woods this year in quantities much larger than usual. Must be perfect weather for them!

  3. Have your kids noticed that the flowers seem to be blooming out of sequence? The wildflowers have all come in at once, it seems, and then our snowdrops were blooming long after the crocuses were gone...very odd.
