Mount Stewart Flower Edits

Recently I walked round the National Trust lake at Mount Stewart near Newtownards, and as it was still early spring there was not much colour as yet apart from the bulbs and blossom.  However as I rounded a corner my eyes lit up with the sparkling yellow colours of the  Lysichiton americanus which has, a few common names, Skunk Cabbage and Swamp Lantern being two of them. 


I think Swamp Lantern is a very apt name for this plant as it totally lit up the whole edge of the lakeside.  So I have played around with the shots I took and I hope you will find one that you like.  Perhaps you would like to let me know? 











Have you got a favourite? 
Thank you for your visit and also to all who leave comments.
My favourite is the last image.

  6. Hi Margaret, I've seen those at Biltmore Estate (in their conservatory)... I've always wanted to know their name... I like what you chose, Swamp Lantern... (Don't like Skunk Cabbage... ha ha )

    I published a blog post this week.. Check it out when you get a chance.

    Hugs,
    Betsy
