Delphinium is a flower genus in the Ranunculaceae Family. These flowers were along a shaded trail. Each flower consists of 5 petal like sepals which grow together to form a hollow pocket with a spur on the end. Within the sepals are four inconspicuous petals similar in color, dark blue. The long spur of the upper sepal encloses the nectar containing spurs of the upper 2 petals.
After many years of taking images of this flower my opinion is that I have never been able to show its described parts very successfully.

I walk a lot at nearby Sugar Creek Park. Recently under the trees I noticed the ground was entirely carpeted with white flowers. Several of my flower experts (Claire and MoBot) identified them as white violets. They are striking.
DIRE verse two RAIN
Thin sound of clarity when rain starts to fall.
Porcelain droplets clutch at fields and treetops.
Violet solar fingers trace the lines of each reflection.
Dawn awakens us
Almost as if each sound will be formed once more.
It gathers itself as wind strokes through treetops shaking the branches.
Shaking the light from the branches enticing the trees with an aura of cloud.
This curtain of rain travels skies and spheres where broken starlight offers
us knowledge .
It carries the tears of the universe,
the sighs of the sun
There is a blueprint of lifelines to follow
Sacred scars anointed with ancient wounds dried in this light
These hemispheres have no name.
They are of rotating formation.
Each breath begins again in the stillness of reflection.
All is of sight and of sound
After this stillness, we will learn to speak again

This miniature white violet (Viola) was growing in abundance along a trail. The scollops and purple stripes can be seen
only close-up. The flowers are formed from five petals; four are upswept or fan-shaped petals with two per side, and there is one broad, lobed lower petal pointing downward.
Never Too Late For Love
…. Flushed with feelings captured in a glow anew
It's never, never too late for a love that is true

Its been a good year for peonies. These luxuriant white flowers are not quite heavy enough
to drag on the ground. Rain will make it happen.
