Look what I found blooming this morning in my wildflower patch!! This is Hepatica nobilis, closely related to the buttercups. It's common name is liverwort because of the shape of its leaves which have 3 lobes. It's one of my earliest blooming wildflowers, and frequently I miss it because I forget to look. These must have been blooming several days as one of them has already started shedding petals. Hepatica is said to come in shades of blue, but I have only ever seen the white.
