Whoa, the Mariposa Lily is seriously STUNNING (#6 in the pictures). Ooh but so's the Scarlet Larkspur (#7) and Humboldt's lily (#14). I didn't realize we had such gorgeous and exotic-looking wildflowers in our state, but maybe these particular ones only come out in extreme heat?

Something so beautiful out of the devastation. Miracles happen everyday.

This is something positive, after such devastating fires...even if it is such a small thing. That must look odd, to see flowers growing in a barren, fire-destroyed area.
