I mentioned that the Wild Onion and Death Camas were kind of hard to find. Since then I've seen them al over, more onions than camas, but if you look closely for the little guys there are lots of them around.
One of the other wildflowers we don't see too often on the mountain is going wild this year. These are the Spiderworts, which are blooming in big healthy plants on the south side of the mountain. These are great flowers for your garden, too.
