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.

I’m a writer, reader, and creative. I thought by now I’d have things figured out, but I keep coming up with more questions. I think that’s okay. I’m here most mornings pondering ordinary things and the 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.
