Bejeweling the Lily
Among the benefits of a passing thunderstorm are the refractive jewels of waterdroplets left behind on the wildflowers. Here, a Kelley's lily is positively dripping in crystal beauty. (Thank you, Marc Briggs for the ID!) There were dozens and dozens of these lilies growing along Rock Creek Road along with shooting stars, rein orchids, wild onion and other species I couldn't identify. I was in macro heaven!
Please come follow my latest endeavor, the Wildflower Conservancy. You'll find lots of helpful information as well as reports from recent wildflower sightings. Thank you!
