Wild Pink (Silene caroliniana) is also known as Pennsylvania Catchfly. This is a species we planted at the Eklund Native Species Garden early on. It last a year or so and then died out. But here it is, growing on the grassy slope. I'm not sure if I've ever seen this growing elsewhere in Connecticut, but it is native to the state.
Pale Corydalis is lot like Bleeding Heart, except it's pink and yellow and grows in places you don't expect. Always a pleasant surprise while out hiking.
