I spent a lot of time last week out and about, photographing flowers. Normally I’d spend more time writing meaningful content to post, but time is in short supply just now, so for the next few days I’m just going to post pretty pictures of spring ephemerals.
Today: trout lily, both yellow (Erythronium americanum)…
…and white (Erythronium albidum).
On one of those trips I found a second population of white trout lilies, which makes me especially happy, since this species is listed S2/threatened in Maryland.
That white sure is . . . white. Ours are paler green. I suppose the white ones are just as hard to find while facing downward.
