Spring Ephemerals

From the Native Woodland section of my shade garden.  Stuff in bloom.  Pictures taken May 8th, 2011

Note the Twin Leaf, or Jeffersonia diphylla in the background.  Bloomed a few weeks ago, but I missed taking a picture.  Seed head forming.  Nancy Miller's fancy striped lily of the valley in there, too.

Back in the garden, a Yellow Lady Slipper, or Cypripedium calceolus.
