Dutchman's Breeches

The cold April weather has a lot of people looking for signs of spring. (There are snow flurries outside my window as I write this.) On Friday I found a stand of an early spring flower, Dutchman's Breeches (Dicentra cucullaria) south of Rensselaer.
Below is a closeup of the flower.
For more information about the plant, see herehere, or here.

Flowers of two kinds, Stephanie's presentation about the Fending WW II letters and the lovely white ones. Thank you.
