Golden Corydalis


One of the things I love about living in the country is that it's bursting with stuff to look at and identify and such.  Every year I find new flowers that I had never noticed before. This is one.

It's a golden corydalis. [Corydalis aurea].   I love the Latin name.  It literally means golden corydalis.  That doesn't happen a lot.

Another common name for this plant is scrambled eggs.  Charming, huh.

It's a short plant.  When I saw these they were no more than 4 inches tall. Wiki says they get about 18 inches tall, but ours didn't seem to get more than 8 inches tall or so after it warmed up some more.
