Globe lilies

Also known as Fairy Lanterns, or calochortus albus. Now beginning to bloom in Almaden Quicksilver Park. These are relatively late-blooming flowers, so their blossoms let you know the wildflower season will soon come to an end. Right now it's at it's peak. Several kinds of lupine, blue-eyed grass, poppies, sunflowers, and buttercups are making the meadows beautiful. This is definitely the time to be outdoors hiking, while the air is cool and soothing, the hills are green and leafy, and the flowers are at their best.
