How creativity seems to colour every day of my life

Dog's Tooth Violet...

Monday 30th May 2011

Macro Monday

Dog's Tooth Violet otherwise known as Erythronium and this variety is the beautiful yellow "Pagoda" one of my favourite varieties...

These plants were photographed in my mum's garden...

Beautiful recurved petals with long elegant stamens.

A beautiful clump forming perennial growing from long pointed bulbs.

It flowers in Spring with yellow pendant flowers on slender upright stems.

Broad elliptic dark green leaves marbled with bronze...

In mum's garden she has them growing beneath her Viburnum Bodnatense Dawn.

Gorgeous elegant sulphur yellow blossoms...


I see why this is one of your favorites... the excellent color and detail in your images of this tiny flower! And you have a good eye for composition as well. (thanks for your visit to my Poppy post) :-)


Oh, such lovely delicate flowers. Great shots.


What a delicate flower and such a pretty yellow - hard to capture I imagine. My favorite is the very first shot - such a lovely composition.

Thank you for stopping by my blog and for your lovely comments.


Lots of gorgeous photos. Wonderful job.


I have seen these blooming, but didn't know the name! Such lovely images Nicolette!


Beautiful flower ... and photos! They remind me a bit of day lilies!


Gorgeous, delicate bloom!

So pretty--fragile, delicate, soft. Great shots--so clear and sharp. Mickie :)


I am not sure that I've ever seen those kind of geese. They seem to be very noble in addition to beautiful. Great photos.


Beautiful and delightful!


So very pretty! A wild version grows in our woods that I look forward to seeing an photographing every spring.


Great captures of these birds (love the colors in the first one!)
