Spring is Springing Despite the Cold/Frost


White Scilla above; Vinca Vine below.

This is some sort of creeping plant with very subtle pale green flowers - detail below. Yet another mystery flower...
Snowdrops in profusion - they spread rapidly and are delightful in the springtime.
Forsythia - the sunshine bush of springtime.
Dwarf daffodils among the vinca vine. Each photo will bring the flower closer for a better focus. They are about 5" tall with the flower less than an inch across. Adorable little ones! Regular sized daffodils - with a 2"+ flower.
Happy Spring to All!

Hi Pat,
One of your mystery flowers looks like Dutchman's Breeches, a member of the bleeding heart family. The flowers are usually white and they look like a little pair of pants hanging upside down. You can find some information here:

I have loved these flowers ever since I was a child - I first saw them when we went to a wildflower preserve in Pennsylvania.

Yes, I think you are right. The woman who owned the house before us has planted a lot of native-to-PA plants, many of which are wildflowers. Thanks for the ID!

I see somebody has already said it, your first wildflower appears to be Dutchman's Britches.

Thanks for the visit to my blog, and the kind comments. Glad my post brought back nice memories.
