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.

  1. I’m glad that I totally agree your quote: “Study nature, love nature, stay close to nature. It will never fail you.”

    -Frank Lloyd Wright.

    I also include everything in the mountains, lands, sea and sky into my world of exploring. The more one studies, loves and stays close to nature, the father he can see, think and feel, I guess.


  2. Great page! I wonder if our paths have crossed in the Rogue or Illinois Valley; do you work for a local land management agency or nonprofit? Rough and Ready is really poppin’ right now, by the way! Thanks again for sharing and I’ll pass it on to botany coworkers here at the USFS Wild Rivers District.

  3. Wonderful flower pictures! Could you please send me an email. I grow tons of wildflowers and am wondering if you might be able to pick up a kind of seed for me on your adventures. Thank you!


  4. Came across this site when I was researching Asarum wagneri in the southern Oregon cascades and was interested in your post of it on Grizzly Peak. It would be nice to see it there, as we are trying to save the Cascade Siskiyou Natonal Monument from being sliced up by Secretary Zinke
