Dutchman’s Breeches, Dicentra cucullaria, are among my favorite spring ephemerals. After photographing them for many years, I really just had one that I thought was print-worthy.  Now there’s two.

I am quite happy that spring has finally sprung.  Last autumn was lost and the winter, although cold and full of some attractive ice subjects, was a bit disappointing for snowy landscapes.  Now there is green everywhere, becoming more lush with each day and lots of April showers, with the promise of another season of growth.

    Steve, A graceful image of these delicate flowers. I love your composition- beautiful work. I must admit, they make me think of teeth. 😬

    Both photos are appealing, although I still find myself startled by the color. Apparently my connection of Dutchman’s breeches to patches of blue sky is so deep and so strong I keep expecting to see blue flowers, as well.

    The differently colored backgrounds certainly add interest. The arc of these flowers reminds me of bleeding hearts.
