Photo Friday – Arrow-Leaved Balsamroot

Under the category of “I have lived here most of my life and never noticed this before” I bring you the spring showing of the arrow-leaved balsamroot that is decorating the hills around Kamloops these days. A friend pointed out the flowers to me the other day on a hillside I drove past for many years on my way to work. I must have been on auto-pilot all those years because I don’t consciously remember seeing them before. Yesterday, Gerry and I climbed the hill to snap a few photos.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I'm here most mornings with a photo and a few words about ordinary extraordinary things and, sometimes, thin places where faith intersects.
  1. How lovely! I love bright flowers. And I adore old, gnarly trees.

    1. Thank you, Karen! The bright yellow on the hillsides is so cheery right now.
