I should know what this is, but don't. Need a little help from the botanists out there.

Many thanks for visiting and though I may not always reply to your comments, know that they are greatly appreciated.

i am pretty sure this is a scilla siberica. i shot them last year, see. the sweet spot focus is extra gorgeous here on the still closed bloom. my lensbaby lens has been delivered on friday and i LOVE it, LOVE it, LOVE it. thanks for giving me the idea! i'll show some pics soon. have a beautiful spring day.

love the use of focus here once again! i agree with trilliana - i, too, think it's scilla siberica (or spring beauty or wood squill). whatever its name, it's absolutely attractive!

I agree, Siberian squill, Scilla siberica A detailed review of the plant is at http://www.illinoiswildflowers.info/weeds/plants/sb_squill.htm.
Your rendition is beautiful. The bud seems to glow from within.
