Camas lilies and publicity photos…a gorgeous day

Went to Cattle Point yesterday to update publicity photos.  There were oodles of blue camas lilies brightening up the grey day.  So gorgeous. This lovely start-shaped flower grows locally in the moist Garry oak meadows in spring.  The edible bulbs are sweet, and they were a staple of many First Nations groups including the Coast Salish who inhabited this part of the coast. They are not to be confused with the white camas lily which is quite poisonous and grows in the same habitat.  Blue camas lilies were harvested during flowering to ensure a safe food supply.

Oh, and here are a few of my new publicity shots.
