Actually - they are related - both from the poppy family and also part of the dicentra group. The Dutchman Breeches (Dicentra cucullaria) is a woodlands plant that flowers briefly in the early spring. Almost missed this and was lucky to find it. The leaves were in a heavily shaded area with the flowers sticking out into the sunshine. The state park that is near us is famous for it's bluebells - but at this time of the year - a plethora of spring woodland wildflowers. You just have to walk slowly and look closely to see them all! ~bruce.

Bruce, Thanks for the info. I agree with what you said. Almost not matter where you are: desert, woodlands, prairies etc, there is a lot to see if you take the time. We don't have that species in Alberta..that I know of. One of my favorite wild flowers is shooting star (Dodecatheon conjugens). Thanks for showing off this flower.
