These wonderful wild flowers are beautiful and also very fragrant.  You can smell them when the wind blows.  I caught this caterpillar enjoying the flowers in the early spring.

Wild Onions in the neighborhood, Shasta County

Wild Onion.
Allium triquetrum is the name of the flower or wild onion.

 

I am very fond of this wild flower which is actually more known as a weed.  It grows in most the valley areas of northern California, and the name is Allium triquetrum or as I like to say, wild onion.  A friend once told me this, and I always think of her when I see these pretty flowers, which I believe are edible onions too. But I would be careful where I get them from.
