Past It's Prime
I am not sure what this wildflower was, but there was a lot of it growing in the wildflower fields surrounding Trillium Lake this past weekend. It was very warm in the fields, being continually beaten by the sunlight and the recent wind. It has been a very dry summer here in our area. We went 51 days with no rainfall, and received .4 inches back on September 10th. I do not recall any other precipitation since then. It has been a year for the record books. Not bad for the Pacific Northwest. But that all ends this weekend. The forecast is saying rain is on the way and once it arrives, it tends to stick around for months ;)
UPDATE: Thank you to Judy for identifying this plant as Cows Parsnip!
