It's a mystery to me

Last year the power company took down a lot of scraggly junipers that had grown up along the road. The trimming let in more light and these flowers popped up where nothing could ever grow before. I've never seen this flower before and have no idea what it could be.

Thank You Ms.~K for identifying this as Spotted Wintergreen.

Yay for the power company they left something very very pretty (even though it was not intentional).

That is a neat surpise.
Don't know what it is.

I have no idea, either. Are they some sort of cyclamen? Maybe not, cyclamen wouldn't be hardy that far north would they?
