Glacier Lily: Erythronium grandiflorum

As quickly as the snow receded in early May the Glacier Lilies appeared to carpet the forest floor a beautiful yellow even before the grasses greened. Now only a month latter they have bloomed and done their thing. It’s hard to say how many photos we took of these wonderful flowers in just a few short weeks but they kept coming back to photograph them just a wee bit more more each and every day.

Here are a few chosen somewhat at random presented as a tribute to a wonderful wildflower.

All through May they kept us company on rainy days

And sunny days as well.

  1. Those are beautiful! I think we saw some of those growing in our neighborhood and was wondering if they are lilies. They are smaller than other lilies. Glacier lilies is an accurate name for the area I live in!
