Wildflowers and Sunshine

The Camas has started blooming in the meadow.   The sunshine and wildflowers are typical for Camas Meadows in June.  There is no June gloom on this side of the Cascades.  Camas Meadows is located quite a distance away from the Cascade crest.  So once the intensity of the weather fronts coming with the Gulf of Alaska drop just a bit we are blessed with sunshine for most of the month.

The wildflowers are in full bloom.  Every year is just slightly different.  This year the balsam arrowleaf decided NOT to wait for the lupine to start blooming.

So we will have to wait for the lupine to bloom in a week or so.  By that time the arrowleaf should be going to seed.   Sometimes they decide to bloom at the same time competing for attention.

This year we will have admire the blooms without the distraction of contrasting colors.  Not sure why some years the blooms come at the same time while other years everything happens at the same time.

This year it appears that most flowers are just a bit late including the phlox.  However, the lupine is very late.  So come to Camas and check out the wildflowers and sunshine.  After an exhausting day among the wildflower blooms there is always the deck with its view of Three Brothers Peaks.

We have openings in June and July for the remainder of the wildflower show.
