I love wildflowers.. those wonderful treasures that self-seed and come back each year to amaze and thrill us and make driving or walking through the countryside such bliss. I await the blooming of the wild Columbia Tiger Lily each summer, they are my all-time favorite wildflower. They LOOK like their tamed and enlarged hybrid cousins, but these are only about the size of a the circumference of an egg.
I took these photos from my car, actually! I was on the way home on the Historic Columbia River Highway after volunteering at Multnomah Falls for the afternoon. I had spied the lilies in bloom on my way to the falls so was keeping a sharp eye for them on the way home so I could get a photo. There wasn't a spot to pull fully off the road so I pulled over as far as I could, rolled down the window and zoomed in and got these photos. :-)
Well, we're off to run some errands as we're having a family BBQ tomorrow. I hope you have a wonderful weekend full of love, pretty things and yummy things to eat.
((hugs)), Teresa :-)
