An Unknown Native Wildflower

It's very dainty, this little native flower. It's growing right in the moss on the hill, but also grows in the grass along the side of the house, too. Actually, there's literally thousands of them everywhere! Very pretty, but I have no clue as to what they are.

It stands about 4 " tall, and the flower is only about an inch in diameter.

Lovely white little blossom with light purple stripes.

If anyone can tell me what it is, I'd be grateful! Have tried looking it up, to no avail. They're growing amidst the Trout Lilies. Will have to post a picture of them, too. They're all starting to bloom on the hill behind our house.

Thanks Donna!
I'll take a good picture of the leaves today and send it to you.
I really appreciate this. Have searched online, and usually have no trouble finding out what things are, except for this one!
