I expect the ones my mother had were Oxalis articulata. Pretty pictures
on that site you sent, Kitty, I'm in love with those lilies. Maybe in my
next life I'll garden where there's water.

Are you talking about Oxalis adenophylla?  Common name is Sauer Klee, 
Sauerklee
Go to:
http://www.srgc.org.uk/bulblog/log2004/080604/log.html
it's the second pic up from the Bottom of the page.

I grew those years ago, but I don't recall what happened to them cuz
they're 
no longer here.  Then last year our MG  Shakespeare Garden asked me to
get 
them some Pink Buttercups.  I wasn't sure what they meant as I was
thinking 
Ranunculus and couldn't come up with a pink one that would be hardy.
Then I 
found some references to O adenophylla being called Pink Buttercup and
it 
turned out that's what they wanted.  Why would an Oxalis be called a 
buttercup?

Thinking more about it, maybe yours isn't O adenophylla. It has these
cute 
accordian-like leaves.  There are other pink Oxalis out there wiith the 
typical shamrock-like leaves.  They are all such pretty gems!
