What I am delighted to have Erythronium displayed as yours.
By cons, this fall is certain, I buy red color Corydalis solida (I know where to find it) and malkensis white Corydalis (if I find the seeds)

Thank you Dave It is my pleasure to share and hopefully encourage others to fully explore the endless range of possibilities that plants and gardens offer us.

I would warn that once smitten there is no cure but I have never found any one that would want to be cured of a love of plants.

PS. It does sound that such a warning is way too late for you anyway;-))
The warning is at least 10 years too late!  :)

A joy to read, as always.

I wish my corydalis would thrive.  I'll keep trying.

A good read and great photos as always Ian. Good to know I am not the only one who likes to see fat buds of things emerging above ground - in some ways they are more exciting than the flowers because there is still the oportunity for the imagination to get to work, and before you find that the bud has been chewed or battered by the elements. And you are right, they are beautiful in their own right, perhaps worth a thread..

I remember the hike with Ian in March 2009, at the Trillium rivale slope along the Illinois River, which is mentioned on p. 7 of Bulb Log #15 as the inspiration of this week's garden feature. Note also a few Erythronium citrinum in the bottom of the photo.

That is the one Ed, I used a picture of it in my talk in Edinburgh. I have fond memories of the trip when you drove me through Oregon looking at Erythronium, Trillium etc.

Not sure about the ID of that muscari, Yann.  It is from wild collected seed from Turkey which we were given as simply Muscari sp. 
Not sure if it may be  a form  of  M. anatolicum. :-\
