There are some in our front yard, and google isn't being much help.

I don't know, but I will link a friend to this post who might, so don't be surprised if you get a random comment from djinn :)

Looks like a yellow, maybe an off-white.

What? It's a SIMPLE taxonomy, though, isn't it?

Ha ha ha.

...Yes, I guess it is a nice simple taxonomy. There's even a reasonably good mapping from one to the other in google- "little yellow flower" did get me to "birdsfoot trefoil" the other day without much work. But this one isn't quite as easy a mapping. :)

I thought you mowed over your flowers yesterday.

I'm not a terribly successful flower-killer.

I think it might be bladder campion but I'm not sure?

Came late to the party. This is correct!

My father says it is a Bladder Campion, probably Silene cucubalus.

Yes, it is a Bladder Campion. Thanks.

I had a thought that I once knew what they were called, because they also grow in the fields near my parents; but "Bladder Campion" is a new one for me. But there don't seem to be other common names, so I guess I've always considered it "that white bell-shaped plant."

Geez! What's your problem! I *did* answer your question. You never indicated the degree of precision required in the response.

You need to learn to frame your questions better. ;-)

The common German name, translated, is "popping-flower". If you pick the flower, and smash it onto flat surface (skin on arm works well), it makes a loud pop-sound. Great kids entertainment on long walks. Leave some standing for Saturday, please!

Heh. There ain't many standing, but I'm not mowing again before the weekend, so, as they say, go to town.
