113Days #253 Wild Flowers

There are so many little beauties hiding among the towering trees on the mountain. But feeling a risk of boring you, these will be the last for this week of plants found in the meadow on the eastern slopes of Mount Hood, Oregon, USA.

A type of mountain straw flower.

This seems to be some type of straw flower. I have picked bouquets of them and they stay looking like this, except the yellow centers and the green stems all turn tan. While they are beautiful in the meadow with the glow from a low sun on the mountain, I have to admit they do lose the same sense of beauty in a vase.

Looking at the photoz I have shared this week, I know I am a bit obsessive with the plants. It must be some kind of fetish, but hopefully not one that will ever get me in trouble.

    We call your straw flower “pearly whites” and try to nab them early in summer before they completely open. Never have looked up their real names! But straw flower is a great description.

      Thanks for the info. I don’t have a wildflower id book so have no idea what they are. The one thing I do know about the is they are prolific and always a sweet little bouquet to see at the edge of the woods.
