Wild Hyacinth

This afternoon, in an unlikely spot just above the river, a flash of blue caught my attention and there I found that the Wild Hyacinths have just begun to bloom. I couldn’t resist posting one picture: I’m sure I will post more later.

Wild Hyacinth

When I ran across these flowers today it brought back a memory from just one year ago when I posted a photo of one and with the efforts of Adam and Lori it was identified as Wild Hyacinth, Brodiaea douglasii according to the Washington Native Plant Society
