Common Camas


On a visit last weekend to the Camassia Natural Preserve in West Linn, the last bits of Common Camas dotted the landscape. It is the end of its blooming season, but these three busy bees didn't seem to mind!

Can you believe that I'm a native Oregonian and didn't know until two weeks ago that these were Camas flowers?? I photographed some for Facebook and researched them before posting. :-)
