The title sounds like a little nickname for a boyfriend or girlfriend. A little better than "sugar booger" to be sure.
Anyhow, I think this is an Anemone pulsatilla http://calphotos.berkeley.edu/cgi/img_query?query_src=photos_index&enlarge=0000+0000+0306+1694. Apparently it's common all over North America, so at least my identification follows the first rule of "Does the species you've supposedly identified naturally reside in the area in which it was found?"
I like how it looks like the bud is floating in the grip of the stalk like a gem stone in a jewelry setting.
