Sorrels

Wood Sorrel-y.

These pink things all over the woods (and swamps) are wood sorrels! I think they’re common wood sorrels, but there are some slight differences (petal shape, stamen color) that could just be due to different varieties, or different growing conditions, or different species. I don’t know.

Regardless, they’re in the oxalis family, so they’re related to shamrocks.
