    So, any guesses as to what they might be? Anyone have a recipe? Bonus points for Identifying the yellowish looking plant in the top of the picture (although, it's usually green).

    The yellow plant with the water hemlock is Smilicina Stellata or Stary Solomon Seal.

    Nope, not Indian Paintbrush, and nope on the tree species too.

    The red one is a type of snow drop. It's a spungy thing that is kind of like a fungus, that grows when the snow melts.

    Yer right lacyj, they are pine drops. And the tree behind it is of course...a pine, although I can't tell you exactly which type of pine without seeing some needles, but it looks like Lodgepole Pine judging by what little I can tell from the cones.
