Red stamens of a Dog toothed Violet for Ruby Tuesday 2

A beautiful wildflower today in bloom!  An Adder's Tongue or Trout Lily or as the name I knew it as a child, A Dog-toothed Violet.  Neither a lily nor a violet, this early woodland favourite delights me with its beauty of its lovely yellow petals and its striking red stamens! Oh, What a happy Day on this first of May Day it was finding this favourite beauty!
