Clintonia borealis

By Joline
This is also called bead lily for the beautiful bright blue berries that will appear later in the summer. It grows in dappled forest light is large colonies near my cottage.
The roots were one used by trappers to rub on their bear traps, since black bear are attracted to the scent.

A delightful shot of the flower Joline. Very delicately done. I must confess that I find the frame just a little on the heavy side; notwithstanding that its still a super shot.

A delicate little flower Joline, with such large leaves . I guess if Bears were attracted to the smell of the root it might be a little offputting to humans Wink? xx
