These lovely flowers are Oaks Toothwort - Cardamine pulcherrima var. pulcherrima. They bloom March to June, flowers are about 1.3 cm (1/2") across in loose clusters and have 4 pale pink/lavendar petals with veined lines. Their range is West of the Cascade mountains in shady woods and in the Columbia River Gorge. The common name "oaks" refers to this species' preferred habitat under the Garry Oak (Quercus garryana) trees.

hi julie
la mise au point est un peu juste mais cela adoucit la photo qui reste agreable.

Hi Julie,
Great shot! The lavendar colour is beautiful and depth is lovely. Good clarity capturing the delicate details. Well composed with the flowers positioned nicely!

Nice Julie
Excellent macro,great colors and details.

Hi Julie,
Beautiful spring flower with great color and light. I like the grey b/g because it's not taking any attention away from the main object. I do feel you could sharpen the photo just a little bit.
BTW, great to see that you and you sister are both sharing the same hobby. But, both have a completly different stlye of photography,
