Shooting Star

Few-flowered Shooting Star ~ Dodecatheon pulichellum

This flower has been a favorite of mine for about seven decades and I have over a hundred pictures of it in my archives, but yesterday when I ran across this specimen growing along the Munson Creek Trail leading up to the higher ground of the KooKooSint Ridge I couldn’t resist taking one more picture. I think this shows the color and details of the flower better than any of the others that I have taken.
