Dutchman’s Breeches

Dutchman’s Breeches and Squirrel Corn are both wildflowers that can be seen here in Northeast Ohio.  I don’t know if is where we hike, but I more often see the Dutchman’s Breeches. Here are some, seen in Hinckley Reservation. (of course!)

The Dutchman’s Breeches, with a little imagination look like little pairs of pants – upside down with the legs pointing up, but still pants (or breeches).  My Grandfather used to say it “britches”… like “hold on to your britches”, ummm, but that is quite the tangent isn’t it?  Aren’t they adorable?
