Dutchman’s Breeches

Dutchman'sBreeches“Dutchman’s Breeches” is another delicate Spring beauty. Enjoy it when you see it as they don’t last long. They resemble clusters of white pantaloons hanging on a line, hence the name Dutchman’s Breeches. They hang on a leafless stalk above much divided feathery leaves. I wait every Spring for these little beauties!
