Slow down and notice the wildflowers July 10, 2011

Filed under: Nature — stormskyblue @ 5:20 am

This is a Mariposa Lily.  There are between 40 and 70 species and this one is a protected native AZ plant.  The flowers are 2 inches in diameter and the plant 1-2 feet tall.  The bulbs were eaten by Native Americans and Mormon settlers.  I’m so happy I stopped to take this picture even though the people I was on the hike with passed them by without so much as a glance.  To me, this beauty should not be missed.  I feel sorry for those people who go through life so quickly.  They need to slow down and notice the wildflowers.
