Merrybells. Just the name is pretty. These strange woodland wildflowers have leaves that are punctured by the stem. The stem shoots straight up then curves back down so that the flower is a yellow bell of curving twisted petals. The yellow is a subtle one, so that it blends in with the bright green of the leaves and is easily overlooked. But once your eyes catch one cluster of stems and flowers and 'learns' to see, you find them scattered along the woodland floor, each cluster its own unique arrangement of blooms and leaves. Because of that quality of being hidden then spectacularly revealed, along with the lovely grace that the flower possess, it is another of my spring woodland favorites. Merrybells: Makes me smile just to say it.
