Plants of the Week!

Spring has sprung. Finally! My job took me to rural Lake County to do some botanical surveys last week. We got to camp out for a couple days which is more camping than I did last year. We are starting the first of many rounds of botanical surveys this month. I am so excited to relearn plants.
At the site there are many rare, endangered, threatened or watch list plants out there. This one is Lomatium ciliolatum var. hooveri.

This pretty one is Fritillaria affinis var. affinis. I love the Fritillaria genus. They are so pretty.

This plant is Dodecatheon hendersonii I think, but I'm not sure. It's written in my field notebook but I am too lazy to get it! These plants are not rare but still pretty.

It should be a fun spring!
