    Thank you for yet another beautiful and interesting morning.
    I am amazes at the picture of the cammas lilies blooming on the rocks- I thought they favored moist meadows! Could I plant them in a rock garden?

    Beautiful pictures! Your research of butterflies brings to mind a group raising awaresness for pollinator species here in Ontario.
    Here’s the website :

    That is one of the prettiest colors I have ever seen in flowers. These pictures just keep getting prettier and prettier!

    I’m adding my appreciation of site, photos, and articles! I love today’s tree standing so bravely.

    this species has been a staple crop for many indigenous people in North America – how long would such a beauty last if it was wildcrafted in our own over-populated society?
    incredible color, dependable perennial

    Such a beautiful site and a great way to start the day. I love these in the garden but now I love them more seeing them in their natural site!

    Beautiful photo. This species was important to the native population here on Gabriola Island (Southern Gulf Islands) – wars were fought over ownership of fields of these plants. Sadly, they appear to be in decline due to habitat loss, as are many other native plants and fungi.

    I love camas, and the Oregon White Oak both. I’ve planted quite a few camas in a field near my home – only very few have took.

    Thanks for the Camas picture and write up–I’m from Idaho so it is nice to see a familiar and important plant! I appreciated the article on the butterflies. The word needs to get out!
