For several reasons (not to be considered adequate excuses) I have not posted many of the flowers that have bloomed in May this year. I will try to catch up a bit.

Ballhead Waterleaf ~ Hydrophyllum capitatum

Several photos of the Waterleaf have been included because it is rather special to me. I have encountered it in only two locations in all of my wanderings, these growing along an old logging road that runs below Big Hole Peak at an elevation of about 5,200 feet. It’s in a rather secluded location and few people around here ever get to see it.
