Dutchman's breeches

Blendon Woods - Dicentra cucullaria (Fumariaceae) - last of the blooms this weekend. By next weekend they will all be gone.

Steve and I did a short walk yesterday morning - allegedly to look for warblers. My ulterior motive was to seek out some of the spring ephemerals. I found one plant of Dicentra cucullaria with some good flowers still in bloom. I think I was very lucky to find these tucked away behind a large tree.
