Floral Friday: Wildflowers, Yosemite

The wildflowers were gorgeous Wednesday on the trail from Tioga Road to Mono Pass in Yosemite.  I’ll write more about the hike itself in a day or two…  it was amazing!

    1. The wildflowers were much better than I expected them to be this year, considering how dry our winter was.

    Love the iris, and the lupin – reminds me of spring in Maine.

    1. The iris actually makes me laugh. That’s the only one my son didn’t want to stop for. He said, which is true, that they grow all over our neighborhood (landscaped), so why bother taking photos? I thought if was pretty cool to see them growing wild. The lupin were gorgeous… and they were growing all over. You would’ve loved them!

        I’m not sure if they were wild or not, but there were always the most amazingly delicate, pale blue little iris growing near Shinto shrines in Japan. They looked something like this: http://thesprucery.com/flowers/perennials-g-z/i-l/iris/japanese-iris/
        Here in Hungary we find wild iris a lot in the spring, and there are 3 things that are notable about them. 1: They tend to grow in very dry, grassy areas. 2: The leaves never get more than 4-6 inches long. 3: Despite the diminutive size of the foliage, the flowers are the size that you would expect on cultivated bearded iris, but on a stem only 2-4 inches high. Strange little plant, really.

    1. There aren’t many wildflowers blooming near where we live now that spring has passed. It’s wonderful to see them in the mountains. 🙂
