Hello, I’m Emily. Welcome to my wildflower blog.
I am currently attempting to see every lily in the genus Calochortus. I work for an airline and use my flight benefits to go on my wildflower adventures.
All photos here are my own; most are from SW Oregon or Northern California. I left Southern Oregon in Summer 2016 and moved back to Portland, OR.
Enjoy and thanks for following along.
