These are so cute! We call them Dutchman Breeches here. In the bleeding heart family tho.
The woodland floor is covered with these right now. I wanted to get a more expansive shot, but unlike the loud and brash bluebells, Dutchman’s Breeches are pale and delicate and a bit camera shy. Closeups will have to do. 😉
Thanks, Ilex 🙂
Just lovely Sharon , so delicate 🙂 🙂
Thank you Nigel 🙂
Ah, thanks Mary :).
Pretty! I never knew they came in white.
The wild varieties are mostly white around here. I have several pink cultivars in my home garden, but just this year noticed a couple of errant white varieties popped up. I’ve no idea where they came from, but they’re lovely!
Oh, I love Dutchman’s Breeches! They are just the sweetest little wildflower. I have the tiniest patch of them in the woods, I’ll have to go look to see if they have come up!

I love them too, Eliza! They’re the first wildflower to appear around here. They just cover the forest floor in one place I hike. Not very photogenic as they’re so pale. I found they shoot better in shady weather.
They are sweet little flowers, I agree :).
I didn’t know these grow wild. We have some pink ones in front of our building.
They’re the distant, less flashy cousin to the pink ones. I love them both!
