While strolling the fields to see who’s there we found a handful of newcomers that will be gone in the blink of an eye.
Some in small patches and some stand alone. Some out in the open while some hide along the forest edge.
A nice patch of Parry’s Townsend Daisies seem to shine even without the sunlight on a cloudy afternoon.
This beautiful flower (identified with the help of troutlily57) is a Death Camus. All parts of this wildflower contain toxic chemicals (alkaloids) said to be more potent than strychnine…yikes.
I think this small beauty is in the Phlox family. Yet the specific species needs further investigation.
Finally a beautiful Chocolate Lilly. These are always somewhat sparse and this year the flower seem unusually small.
All beautiful finds and fresh from the fields close to home.

I think the white flower cluster is Death Camas.
Hi and I think you hit the nail on the head. I just looked through our states field guide and it is a perfect match. Thanks for the ID we appreciate your chiming in.
You’re welcome, Mike! I do enjoy your morning updates – happy to contribute.
We are glad to have you along for the ride.
They are beautiful and must be such a joy to see along your walks.
HI Eliza, yes it is a wondrous thing to have so many flowers blooming from spring to early summer. Many hidden in the grass yet others out in full display.
