Happy May Day!  What better way to start the month than with some beautiful flowers!

 

I went for a short hike last weekend and looked at wild flowers in the East Weaver Basin Trail.  It was beautiful, there were quite a few flowers!  But it was raining quite a bit!

 

I managed to get some nice photos of these flowers, native to Trinity county, California. Pictured here is the Calypso Orchid, a native wild flower.

The hike was great, quite a few people, I hope to get back this week on a sunny day.

The Trinity county native wild flowers are so beautiful! Many of these flowers do not grow at my house, the area we went for a hike at was very wooded, wet, and hilly.  This native wild flower is from the Primerose family.

Next sis the beautiful Henderson’s Shooting Star, this flower is very tiny and delicate with several flowers shooting out, of one star shaped flower.  It’s tiny stalk with multiple stalks coming out which have the flowers.  There were lots of shooting stars.
