Dog-toothed Violet
aka Trout Lily
Erythronium dens-canis

These lovely lilies cover our woodlands (in Pennsylvania) for a couple of weeks-- then disappear as they are ephemerals. The tiny bublets look like the dog's canine teeth--- the leaves remind fone of the trout as they slip along in the water. This is how one sees them among the grass, etc.

Thanks ro chinga for her UA for "Peeking."

packing to be ready to leave tomorrow!--returning soon

A charming little specimen, love the upright marbled leaves, and nothing like a violet really, but more like a lily.

a nicely composed image with a fine perspective.. the flower the way it looks down is quite appealing.. feels like it is embroiled in observing the beauty of the nature around in its confined sphere.. smelling the fragrances as well.. love the color as well..
