Help with Wildflower Identification

sirben81April 21, 2013

If anyone could help me identify these two wildflowers it would be appreciated. Thank you.

They were growing in northern Virginia woodlands in late April, near a creek.

Unidentified wildflower 1

the top one are daffodils, not a native (at least to the u.s.) but was planted or is an escape from a planting.

Second one looks like that invasive Ranunculus ficaria plant.

Here is a link that might be useful: Link to details on Ranunculus ficaria

Now renamed Ficaria verna, I believe, in case you're Googling.
