Ephemerals bring early light to the drear and shade

Trillium ovatum,\Dicentra formosa (native bleeding heart): Shown here at Cottage Lake Gardens, the trillium (at top) starts out pure white, turns pink then purple as it ages. The native bleeding heart (bottom) needs shade, where it happily seeds about.
