Hepatica nobilis

This little spring flower is not only blue! The colors vary from white, pale blue, blue, pink and purple. I dont't have a photo of the flower in white, but pale blue together with dark blue is pretty, and show the contrast between them!

And here som om them in purple:

Hepatica nobilis2

And then - some guys having a problem deciding what color they want! - Should I be blue - ehm.. come to think of it ........ maybe white .....?

Hepatica nobilis4

- Blue - no - I go for purple - aah, NOT pink!!

Hepatica nobilis3

- Blue - yes purple! Ehm - with a touch of white....perhaps...

And it all starts from this little bud!

Diskuterer med et par øslendinger her akkurat nå om blåveisene er i flere farger. De nekter, men jeg ser det jo her hos deg :-) Flotte blomster. Den hvite som du mangler har jeg tatt bilde av på snøgrensen i 400 moh. idag. Får se om de ble brukbare nok å legge et ut i morgen....

VALKYRIEN sa...

Svein: Østlendinger har ikke mer greie på blåveis enn vestlendinger nei! Til tross for at det er her den vokser!Mange vet ikke engang om at den er fredet, både i forhold til å ta den med rot - og plukke den!

Skulle gjerne sett bilde av den hvite, har sett bilde av den et sted, men har aldri funnet noen selv.

Reader Wil sa...

This is excellent Valkyrien! These flowers are so pretty and all those various hues of blue are so lovely. Thank you for sharing! And thanks for the visit!

Svein sa...

Oooops.
Jeg har ikke tatt bilde av en hvit blåveis, bare av en pen hvitveis.... Men OK, nå lærte vi litt her rundt bordet om blåveis!!

Bim sa...

Now, these are extremely pretty. I especially love the first photo with the dark blue one.

VALKYRIEN sa...

Svein: Fort gjort å ta feil! Men hvitveis har jeg allerede på lager - de er kommet i skogen her nå! :)

Thank you for posting my all time favourite flower!
I have one little plant that barely survives but does not flower due to our climatic conditions and more acidic than alkaline soil.

In any of the colors, they are sure beautiful.

Tarolino sa...

Otroliga bilder på dessa blåsippor. Helt underbara. Jag njuter verkligen av dessa foton. Mina små ynka sippor kan inte jämföras med dessa skönheter. Tänk att du hittat sådana med så mpnga olika nyanser.
Det är faktiskt väldigt kallt här ännu också men det skulle bli varmare i slutet av veckan. HA! Det skulle ju vara varmt vid påsk också. Katten också var det!

Porslinsblommans knoppar har du också lyckats med verkligen otroligt bra.

Katten där högst uppe. Vem är det? Visst är han kunglig som katter är men är han din? Vacker färg har han åtmonstone.

Bryan sa...

The dark blue one truly captures the eye, but they are all pretty flowers.

Libby Murphy sa...

Oh so fascinating, just like watching those little flowers bloom and grow. They are lovely and unusual. I was in Norway a few years back and found it so lovely and charming. Toured with a friend of mine who is an entertainer. It was wonderful.

Jag tycket bäst om den som var vitt och blå.
Tänk vad underbar naturen kan vara.

Du tar mycket bra bilder.
Hoppas det går bra att jag skriver på svenska.

Judy sa...

Gorgeous!! Some of those colour combinations are interesting but not especially pretty! I like the blue and white spotted the best, though. The contrast with the pink in the stamens is perfect!!

Luiz Santilli Jr sa...

Valkyrien,

Your flowers are always fantastic!
Very well taken also, my friend!
I´m in the beach, 90 km from São Paulo and here the net is very slow!
So I´m later in my comments.
Thanks for all!
