Little Pink Bells

From a little over a week ago, after we had a snowfall, I found these cute little pink, bell-shaped flowers in one of our wildflower gardens. They resemble the blue harebell wildflowers a lot, but I’m pretty sure these are not wildflowers. My wife planted a lot of non-natives in the area, mostly iris and lillies, but I think she probably planted these early bloomers, too. They are growing about 18″ tall. If anyone knows what they are, please let me know :o)

I then captured 16 images, varying the focus point, and later combined these images using the focus-stacking technique:

Even though these haven’t yet been identified, they sure were a cheerful sight after the late-spring snow!
