The Wild Ones

Mid spring here in the Coast Range foothills of Western Oregon means purple - camas, sweet flag, and other wildflowers that are in bloom right now. We see them on our daily packwalks, alongside the road, solitary flowers and large clumps. Sybil has finally decided it's too hard to try and sniff each and every one of them, thankfully, so she just enjoys them from a distance.

Sweet flag, a type of iris, that comes in many shades of purple

A good sampling of colour range

Camas. These start blooming just as the last of the late daffodils are fading

I don't know what they are, but they are cute little bells

More sweet flag
