Sounds like them, too - out in the lawn.

Do the "leaves look like grass? If they do, they're crocus.

hm.. wrong number of petals for crocus, 5 vs 6. Whereabouts in the country does this five petaled flower flower?

Thanks to the Wildflower Identifier at: http://www.realtimerendering.com/flowers/flowers.html

I think it might be a Broad-leaved or Carolina Spring-beauty (Claytoniacaroliniana).

BigV, we're in north central Ohio.
Rhianne, that's a great reference for wild flowers, Thanks!
After closer consideration, I'll agree that it's a Spring Beauty, but probably the Virginia variety due to the length of the leaves. The Caroliniana has broad oblong leaves, but you couldn't readily see that from my shot. Here's a different shot of them {sorry so washed out} relative to a common dandelion.

I changed my mind, They do have the broad leaves, also the flower petals overlap slightly whereas the Virginia variety does not.
ClaytoniaCaroliniana it is.
Rhianne, ftw.

I thought they look cute with their surroundings, so I snapped a picture.

Great way to jump this thread from Winter into Spring.

I really like the classic view of the Washington Monument (#3) and particularly the gnarly tree (#5).
My G-son and I come across them along rivers and try to imagine
what sorts of lives they've had with floods and storms and still keep growing.

Nice series !

Nice pics.

The Bradford Pear trees around these parts kept their blossoms for about fifteen minutes. Same for the plum and apple trees.

Don't know what that says for the coming summer...

We always called them Black-eyed Susans.

There was this really mean girl at campfire girl camp whose name was Susan and we were on a scavenger hunt and one item was a black-eyed susan so I said "here, you hold her and I'll punch her in the eye." She was so jealous of my wit and horseriding ability.
