Mariposa Lilies

Mariposa lilies are in bloom now in this area. USDA Plants shows 56 species of Calochortus, all of them confined to the 14 western-most states plus British Columbia and Alberta.

There are many variations in the blossoms even within the same species, but I think they are all beautiful. (I also reserve the right to be completely wrong in my species identifications of them.)
