Wild Blue Flax (Linum lewisii)
and the ridge of Storm Mountain.

The translucent flowers of wild flaxes are so fleeting, sometimes one would see more petals scattered on the ground than still attached to the plants. Yet every morning, there are more flowers again.

Thanks Dean! I've been marvelling at these celestial-blue beauties for years too. Dunno why but this year I got a lot more serious about id'ing all the wildflowers... the flip side may be that I no longer post the unedintified ones on SP LOL
