By way of a disclaimer - there's so much debate over names, am guilty myself; get precious about "pelargoniums" and "geraniums". Some people call this one milkmaids, others call Cardamine californica milkmaids... there's about 150 cardamines & I'm no botanist.

You're right, it's the bird, this flowers about the same time the cuckoos start calling.

You call it a cuckoo, we call it a cowslip. But of course.

Very delicate looking thing, unlike the Cuckoo.

It's a sweet little thing & comes up before the grass has really got going so it stands out nicely. The buds remind me of tiny freesias...
