Dog’s Tooth Violet
[Mayor Park Won Soon’s Hope Journal 451]
A friend from Yeosu sent me this photograph.
The flower in the picture is called a “dog’s tooth violet.”
He also included a note saying, “A dog’s tooth violet waits seven years in the ground until it blooms forth, showing off its beauty and fragrance. Maybe that’s why its stamen looks like a woman’s eyelashes after a makeover.”
