I’m calling it a BYF (Big Yellow Flower) that looks like some kind of sunflower (the ants like it) surrounded by LYFs. Guess I’m not very good at identifying all the wildflowers to be found here. I look them up and still can’t tell half of the time. Any suggestions appreciated.
More of the LYFs (Little Yellow Flowers). Plus a Pocket Gopher burrow for added texture.
I’ve been trying to get photos of the Evening Primrose for three summers now. They always seem to grow along the road where there’s no place to safely pull over. I only had to walk a little ways along the road from safe parking to take this.
Firecracker Penstemon behind some other unknown YF backed by the aromatic Cliffrose.
The Wax Currant only showed a few berries as the birds are beating me to them. But I guess that’s OK, they probably need them more than I do.
The Indian Paintbrush is everywhere. But the Sego Lilies are pretty much gone.
I love my Fridays (actually on Saturday) when I go out on the Walhalla Plateau and rove the trails.
