Wild Dicentra..."Dutchmen's Britches" (Dicentra cucullaria (Dutchmans Breeches))

a lovely wildflower which likes dappled shade. I have a whole hillside of them!

LOL...I've always thought so too, Resi. I'm hoping to post another pic of the hillside once the bloom has really started. Been working on the hillside to removed the deadfalls and dry stuff as it is a hazard in forest fire season, but left this area strictly alone until these beauties have finished their performance.
