hey there lolli, say... wow, thanks so very much...

some folks here, don't like them, as they spread all through their grass...
i love them, though, as they are one of the first spring flowers, and i can dig them up for free, and plant them around my tiny pond...

i will a little picture in, perhaps later, or tomorrow... some more have popped up, and i got some better pics now...

they have a tiny little opening, with a lacy flower egde that is hard to see from angle...

now i have a proper name for them, perhaps now, i can learn more about them...

once again, thanks so very much... :)









*wow, mrE.... the roses, downloaded just now, faster than last time, not sure why... but i CAN SEE THEM NOW.... very lovely!

Dipper,

good photo. There's no size reference in your photo but I can see the sepals and if you look close they are kinda jagged tipped with tiny translucent glands on the very tips. Anyway it's most likely a Lewisia, and probably Dwarf Lewisia (Lewisia pygaea) or Lewisia glandulosa in the Purslane Family (Portulaceae Family). Sorry but as far as I know there are no accepted common names other than the Dwarf Lewisia or just "Lewisia".

dipper,

I think your photo is Meadow Starwort, Stellaria longipes or palustris

Lewisia is a good guess too, though.

more from the land of random expressions of love to sightseers, aka heart-shaped everything everywhere. (see that stone in the middle of the trail?)

Thanks for the ID info folks.

I think Lewisia is in the right direction

Here is a broader shot that may show the scale better.

Dipper,
Your close up photo shows the definitive trait. If you look close at the slightly open flower toward the left. THe fleshy sepals just below the flower have those littel reddish shiny translucent glands. The fleshy sepals are a common trait in the Portulacaceae family, which includes Lewisia. Stellaria would'nt have those.
