Rogue River – Siskiyou National Forest

There are several spring wildflowers in bloom right now along the Rogue River trail (and vicinity), but once I find lilies in bloom, my love for them takes over and I have a hard time focusing on their nearby companions.  I’m really sorry.  So once I again, I am featuring mostly lilies…  P1050805P1050781Fritillaria recurva – Red Bells.  Rogue Rover trail, 03 April 2017.  There is a beautiful patch of Red Bells along this trail that I like to say hello to every year.

P1050811P1050809Prosartes smithii – Smith’s fairybell.  Found off of Galice Rd, 03 April 2017.

The larkspur -pictured above- were growing near Delphinium nudicaule (or red larkspur). I didn’t get a decent image of the red flowers, but I found a couple of plants that had salmon-colored flowers. Anyone know what species it is?  I’m not sure what the purple variety is either…
