This one looks like a Trillium, but seems to be some kind of Orchid. We also “carry” it in yellow:

Marsh Marigold (Caltha palustris), in German: “Sumpfdotterblume,” which always reminds me of my childhood and my mother and I admiring it’s beauty while the frogs quacked their concert…

Wild raspberry plant. – The wild raspberries have the best taste, but the deer flies and mosquitos guard them fiercely…

Don’t you love the promise of spring?
