I found these at Bloedel Nature Reserve on Bainbridge Island, across Puget Sound from Seattle. I haven’t ever seen them ‘in the wild’ in Washington … but they are very similar to Avalance Lilies and Yellow Faun Lilies, which I’ve seen a lot in the Olympics.
One of my favorite springtime wildflowers is the calypso orchid. It is fairly common in the woods in Washington State. The group below, mixed in with yellow stream violets, is at the Bloedel Nature Reserve on Bainbridge Island … I have never seen such a large grouping in the wild.
Bridges are symbols of important events in life. It’s nice when they are able to be done in the midst of flowers and natural beauty.
