Not a Host of Golden Daffodils…

We weren’t even on our way to Beacon Hill Park. We were on our way to China Town but Bill got into the wrong lane by mistake and we had to turn right . We ended up along the North end of Beacon Hill Park. And what did I see? Not Golden Daffodils, oh no, not those, but I must admit there are hosts of them are all over the Park. No, these were little lovely white flowers, a whole swath of them.

I’m so glad we went the wrong way because I’ve never seen this before, must have missed it somehow in all the years we’ve been here. I didn’t know what they were until today. “White Beauty”, Erythronium Californium they are called, I’m pretty sure. I looked them up in my book and on Google.

And then, in the distance I saw a bit of pink and made my way over and found Shooting Stars! Don’t you just love them.

Ah, Spring is here. And I’m so glad Bill took the wrong lane by mistake.

    Great story, Helen. I loved the wrong lane part. I think the common name for the white flowers are Fawn Lilies. Don’t you just love them?I must check out the north part of Beacon Hill Park soon. Nice to have you back. Lia

    Hi, Helen! Breathtaking sight! How lucky we are to have Beacon Hill Park, and what a good thing Bill took a “right” turn. The swaths of delicate colours in spring are lovely – such a joy!! So glad you shared your walk with us – thanks!!
