I was really excited to find this beautiful hybrid of C. tolmiei x C. uniflorus the other day at Days Gulch – 27 April 2016. It was a beautiful shade of purple. Too bad I didn’t get a perfect picture of it. *Shudder.*
C. uniflorus full of rain water. Most had drooping heads.
I didn’t find any Calochortus tolmiei at Days Gulch, but there were a zillion along Eight Dollar Mountain Road. In fact, I have never seen so many in bloom before.
A rainy day at Days Gulch. I’m ready for some sunshine.
Also blooming right now in the area is Western Azalea. It is very fragrant. Well, I’m off to California tomorrow for another Calochortus adventure! Stay tuned.
