Field Trip

camas

Friday afternoon, under beautiful sunny skies, I took a brief field trip to Finley Wildlife Refuge. The refuge is located south of Corvallis on 99W. My buddy Harry had told me about a road filled with blooming camas. Of course, that was last weekend and I wasn’t certain how much blooming continued due to the recent burst of high temps. I discovered many plants still blooming and beautiful. You’ll be seeing many renditions of this flower over the coming months. (Hint: it has something to do with my proposal for Art in Rural Storefronts) I was able to take photos of all stages: from tight buds emerging to spent flowers with seed heads forming.  I really wanted to sit and sketch but had forgotten my paper and time was short due to an early dinner date.  Photos will have to suffice for now.
