Trond, those do indeed look like C. siberica.....only difference with mine is that in early spring they are tinted reddish.  Some of mine are uncovered now but most are still under about 6" snow.

You are teasing me with your S. lilio-hyacinthus!

Along my little creek in the wood the Claytonia sibirica covers many square meters in the spring and early summer.

You asked once wheather my Claytonia was similar to one of yours! I can't find the topic so I started this.

Trond, you can click on the HOME tab in the upper left, then in the Search field on the upper right, type in what you're searching for, such as Claytonia in this case, then click the Search button, and it'll show you all the threads where Claytonia was mentioned.  I will earmark this thread to combine with the original, will do this tonight :-)

Thanks, Mark! This was an old thread however and I would just show the Claytonia now!

No matter if it's an old thread or not, the NARGS Forum is basically a database, enter what you want in the Search filed, and it'll show ALL threads where that term is found.

Trond, your siberica look just like mine...except mine are not even showing buds yet!  Mine have spread into the lawn this year...perhaps they are a little TOO vigourous!

My C. sibirica are seeding around rambunctiously in the garden too.  And I planted the first ones (six of them) just last season!  Now that I have some overwintered plants, I see what they can really do, and I am really quite impressed at the flower power.

The individual flowers are cool too:

Mine are just starting to bud...they are popping up all over but thankfully are easy to control.

Yes! I tried to take closeups but my automatic camera don't cooperate!
