Beargrass


how many flowers on one stalk
enough to make my heart sing


blossoms open
from bottom to top


in multitudes
they light up the woods


~
beargrass, not actually a grass but is in the lily family, 
tends to bloom once every 5-7 years
so when it blooms
we love it!

  10. What a wonderful plant Tammie. It's something I've never come across before. I've just been looking through images of them in the Glacier National Park, is this where you've photographed them ?
    What a lovely hike that would be.

  12. The wonders of nature! It is worth being alive to see it lighting up the fires. Our alpine eucalyptus, Eucalyptus pauciflora, only flowers every seven years. Plants are amazing.

  18. I have never seen beargrass before and it is interesting that they are from the lily family too!
    The shapes of these flowers make me smile as they look like fluffy pom poms. They are pure beauty with such delicate flowers. Truly beautiful photos.
