Spring Beauties


We have two varieties of this beautiful wildflower around here.   Claytonia virginica is white or white with pink stripes.

It blooms in March or April for a week or two, then it's gone.
















 I found this one with pink stripes, too. 










Right next to them I found this.  Claytonia caroliniana is pink with dark pink stripes - and much rarer.  We're lucky to have a few of these here.
