A Walk in the Meadows

Today we went for a wonderful walk at Neskonlith Meadows and saw myriad beautiful spring wildflowers in bloom. The meadows are about a fifteen or twenty minute drive from where I live and at this time of the year they burst into bloom. The hills are carpeted in blooms, predominantly yellow balsam root and avalanche lilies (also called glacier lilies) and in some areas it is totally impossible to avoid stepping on them.

I don't even know what all the wildflowers are called but some of them are balsam root, shooting stars, violets, skunk cabbage and avalanche lilies (not all included in this photo collage) ... I will do my homework this weekend and figure out what the rest of them are. 

This walk might be inspiration for many art quilts to come . . .
