The Wild Camas

Right now it is peak Camas time in our part of the world. The wild Camas are found primarily in areas with wet soil. Some of the best patches are found growing near roadside ditches like this group across from our mailbox.

The pretty, light purple flowers open first from the bottom of bloom stalk. They have a star shaped blossom with six evenly spaced petals.
