Claytonia virginica or Spring Beauty is very small.  Very small leaves, very small flowers.  Very very small.

Also called Fairy Spud.  Root is edible and maybe tastes like radish.  Never tried it, not big on radishes and they probably are very very small.  Good size for fairies, although fairies might be make believe, unlike me.
