It has been rather windy lately and despite putting the camera on a tripod I could not get the flowers to stay still. I sometimes carry a clothes peg around with me to hold a stem still until I photograph it but it would take a lot of clothes pegs to keep these from moving. It seems that in the Sandbox the common colour in the flower bed is yellow at this moment. The lemon fragrant dwarf iris is little sweety in the garden. My husband took the photo of the Erythronium americanum or dogtooth violet or trout lily as it called around here. It bloomed only the one day and hasn’t opened its petals since. The Euphorbia myrsinites or Donkey-tail Spurge is a plant that loves the sandy soil in the Sandbox. I need to pull loads of it out each year to keep it in check. The lovely white pulsatilla vulgaris is a favourite in my garden. The flowers and the seed heads are so attractive.
I am joining Mary for Mosaic Monday. Have a great week. Valerie
