Lets see if anyone knows what it is.

First clue, The deer love them, and they are edible for human consumption too.

Turns out it is Trillium viridescens after all. The red petals faded over the last few days. Also saw a nice patch of these at the Mt. Cuba Center last weekend.

Trillium flexipes also flowering in my yard.

Bluets growing in a moss patch at the Mt. Cuba Center.
Virginia Bluebells... though this is a white one in a huge patch of blue ones. There were also some totally pink.
Trillium sulcatum (I think) the petals are a little short to be T. erectum.
Trillium pusillum with nice petals for once. Usually they turn pink and shrivel up into mangled tooth picks, which are pretty in their own right but not the same as seeing them in their prime.
Trillium grandiflorum just starting to turn pink.

What I think is Trillium rugelii also at the Mt. Cuba Center.
Trillium simile patch.
Also a random hybrid of T. simile and one of the red species. Their petal aren't supposed to change color at all.

Could be wild leek. Didn't realize deer loved those, though! I used to see it all over WNY but have never seen it here in NH.

Exactly, or Ramps as they are known around this neck of the woods.
I'm going to try making a rough crude pile of branches over them to keep the deer from eating them.

I have noticed that deer eat different things at different places and their taste changes too.

I visited a lady that sold plants. She had lots of problems with deer eating certain plants. The woods alongside her driveway where absolutely full of Wild Leeks. In my woods there are very very few Wild Leeks, the deer get everyone.

I had a large Asparagus patch at my last home. For about 18 years the deer never ate one. Then one year they started and since then the deer would get about 80% of the Asparagus and leave me a few.

Back to whats blooming, I see the wild Violets are blooming, things are really starting to go and when they do they go fast!
