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

 

 

allium triquetrum or wild onion in Shasta county, it grows everywhere and is so pretty.
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.
