Pulmonaria, Lungwort

Now I am getting worried. And maybe you should be too. You see, the flowers are beginning to appear at a rate faster than one a day, and I am racing to catch up with them. I will not be sharing more than one a day (as per our Flower a Day arrangement) but I am now spoiled for choice as to what to share with you. This beautiful little grouping of flowers (whose common name is lungwort – much too ugly a name for it) was photographed yesterday evening on my walk, right in my village. There were only a couple of these plants in what seemed to be a neglected planter on the side of the road. But the flowers are exquisite, at least I think so. I won’t tease you with the other five varieties I photographed during the day around my house and on that walk. You will have to wait for them, if I can fit them all in. In the meantime, enjoy this lovely tiny bouquet and your day, my friends.

  1. Yes, I see these whimsical little bits of colour dotting some lawns on my walks about the town. i like that they are a blend of pinks and purples on the same plant, not just one solid colour (although I know they can be), Perky and sweet, they hang out together in little rosettes and are another welcome sign that spring is here for sure. Thank you, Ellie, for this pink and purple flower day.

    1. It’s lovely indeed to see them, though tonight when I saw them on our walk they seemed to be huddled together against the cold wind!
      I’m glad you liked today’s offering Janet. Hugs.

  2. Thank you very much Ellie. And it’s a beautiful little bouquet. Two different colours looks like on the same plant. Makes you want to get out and take a walk to see what you can find in your area. Thanks again and I hope you have a great day
