Not all flowers are bursting with showy color. One of my favorites is the Jack In The Pulpit, which is the plant in the foreground above. Hiding right in the middle is the green flower.
The other plants above (in 3 clusters), with the watermelon-like leaves, is Bloodroot, which bloomed earlier with a very pretty white flower.
