Oregon Fawn Lily, Erythonium oregonum

Just outside Yacolt, Washington is a very small area that has conditions that are ideal for this attractive lily. After taking this picture, it was very sad to see a local resident use a pocket knife to cut every flower he could get his hands on......

Snow Queen, Synthyris reniformis

This is one of the few flowers I saw today while walking through Moulton Falls Park. This native perennial grows low to the ground and the flowers are only about 1/4" long and easy to miss.

Trumpet Daffodil, Narcissus

Although not native to the Northwest, there sure are a lot of them around here! Recent rains broke the stem on this one so it now resides in a vase in the kitchen.
