Every spring the wildflower show here on our property is just amazing to behold. One of the first species to arrive is the breathtaking and diminuative Henderson's Fawn Lily. Hundreds upon hundreds of these beauties bejewel the hillside and our lower forest, each worthy of an appreciative stare.

This flower stands only a few inches off the ground with its face directed downwards, and for this reason, it can be a challenge to capture the beauty of this blossom. To get this picture, my camera was on the ground, tilting up at the pair. My contorted, upside-down position--and how I stuffed myself under a bush--would have had all of you in hysterics! :D I had seen these two a few days before and their loveliness stopped me in my tracks. I didn't have my camera with me at the time and when I got up onto the upper trail again, days had passed and I expected them to be wilted and fading away. However, when I discovered they were still in perfect shape, I was prepared to do anything it took to get a nice image of them!

The Erythronium genus has 20-30 different species which can be found over the Northern Hemisphere. They are pink, purple, yellow or cream in color and are a very hardy, long-lasting flower. We have one species on our property, and just off the property on public land there is another kind, the Oregon Fawn Lily, which is a beautiful cream color.

If you would like to know more about these pretty flowers, Wiki has a page here: Wikipedia: Erythronium or more specifically: Wikipedia: Henderson's Fawn Lily
