We had the wild flower specie of the dicentra blooming in the woods when I was a kid...they liked the rocky areas near an oak woods...they are very short...only 6 inches tall with ferny leaves and only one spathe of white flowers per plant...we called them "Dutchman's Breeches" cause they looked like white bloomers on a clothesline! We never heard of political correctness in those days.

Lori, it is sometimes referred to here under that name, too. Why choose Dutch, tho, I wonder?

something to do with CLEAN ...you know, the white caps the women wore! Dutch cleanser...they even scrub the streets beside the canals!
Great country, the Netherlands... I have a powerpoint presentation that a friend forwarded to me of the Keukenhof gardens...just amazing.. imagine a woodland planted with a stream of muscari running through it!
they also have a Japanese garden ...just AMAZING.

Lori, you have just given me a brilliant idea for a future letter to Santa!! I've never been to Holland in the Spring. Mmm..........................

The Keukenhof is an amazing place to visit. Do go if you get the chance!

It is all in the hands of Santa Claus now, Lori!
