As I was walking back from the Big Garden this weekend, I spied a flash of purple alongside the road. Upon closer inspection I discovered a native Shooting Star in full bloom. I really love these delicate wildflowers and they always remind me of my late grandfather, who referred to them as Rooster Bills. While shooting stars aren't rare in these parts, they can be very particular about where they grow. That always makes finding one in full bloom a treat.
