shooting stars

aren't these sweet little wild flowers? they are called shooting star or dodecatheon meadia. at the time of the settlers they were much more abundant. they called the flower "prairie pointers".

today, it is often cultivated for the garden...like here.

Really pretty, Stacy. I'll have to look out for these and learn a bit more about them.
