Geum triflorum: flowers

[Photo: Geum triflorum in bloom.]Walking around the block, I caught a glimpse of what I thought was a tiny bleeding heart plant (Dicentra sp.) already in bloom. A closer look showed it was prairie smoke (Geum triflorum)—the first time I've seen this in bloom in real life. I found out later that when my mom was growing up in Saskatchewan they actually did call this wildflower "bleeding heart". [Photo: Geum triflorum foliage.]Unfortunately, my prairie smoke is nowhere near the blooming stage yet.
