OK so yesterday's flowers were pretty nice, but nothing beats a meadow full of glacier lilies! Truly, my happy place 🙂 #wildflowerwednesday #wildflowers #mountoutram #mtoutram #alpine #hiking #glacierlilies #erythroniumgrandiflorum #explorebc #beautifulbc #beautifulbritishcolumbia #northcascades #ifttt
Much as I love seeing all those other flowers, there is one in particular that I get a little giddy over. Yes, it’s the humble glacier lily. I was hoping that there would be a remnant snow patch or two in the higher elevation meadows that would be ripe for a glacier lily bloom. Sure enough, there was one little snow patch that had a handful in bloom, but my eye was drawn to a bigger patch of yellow in a more distant meadow. There was something about the particular shade of yellow that had me thinking I was not just seeing more arnica. We tiptoed our way around the flowers to get to a well-placed rock at one end of the meadow where we could see without doubt that this was a great big patch of glacier lilies in peak bloom. Yay!
I had found my happy place.
