    How beautiful and unusual looking (once I followed the links). I have never seen this, but will be thrilled if I do!

    I remember these from long ago hikes in Northern California, but never in such a rugged surrounding ! They are so beautiful.

    Loves me some–all!–Calochortera 😉 Found a bunch of C. albus about a year ago in my local mountains (the Cuyamacas).

    I was so excited to view the Garden of Secrets talk on Sunday and then realized the timing puts it right at the start of a previous commitment 😢😥😓 still was nice to see the fairy lanterns – thanks

    Hi Cindy

    If you’re interested in seeing the Garden of Secrets, a high definition copy can be found on “The Film” page at https://thegardenofsecrets.com/. You might also want to check out “The Experts” page.

    All the best

    If you were wondering about an entry on Wikipedia, why wouldn’t you go straight to the reference and check? Mary Elizabeth Parsons would have set you right:
    “The Indians are fond of the bulbs, which they eat with great relish, calling them “bo”.”

    Probably Pomo, but the reference does not actually state that.

    What a gorgeous photo. The flower that made me switch from zoology to botany for my MA degree in those way long long ago long ago times…

    The post is good. Now is 2022, and this seems to be the fateful last post. This has been a good series and deserving a nice party for the job well done, maybe with plenty of native plants for refreshments.

    Hello Daniel and team! Will botany photo of the day be back or is it another sad casualty of the pandemic? It could be Botany picture of the week or month and my heart would be content. I hope everyone is healthy and in a good place with plants 🙂
