One of the first signs of spring was spotted yesterday afternoon at Johnson's Mound. We call them Dutchman's Breeches but the proper name is Dicentra cucullaria and they're related to poppies and bleeding hearts.

The patches of green under the still-grey tree trunks is a hopeful sign that spring is finally here.

Thanks! Just find the Macro setting on your camera and take some shots.

I love these so much! They were pretty rare, even when I was growing up. (Do you know, alot of people don't know what these are?)

Thanks for posting this--such a dear memory!
