I have been carefully observing Erythroniums.  They are also referred to as dog toothed violets, due to the fact that the bulbs look like an extracted dogs tooth. If you have a woodland style garden or shady spot in you garden, that has moisture retentive soil then this Spring bulb should be for you.  These  bulbs are  growing particularly well under  a group of Hydrangeas.  Images from a rainy work day  on Friday 15th  April 2016.  Enjoy.  013014.JPG015

Certain flowering bulbs  really do have the capacity to stop my in my  tracks. Erythronium Pagoda is definitely one of them.   Stunning.
