Coast Lilies are having a wonderful bloom this year.

Mary Sue Ittner photographed these Coast Lilies, Lilium maritimum, on the Point Arena-Stornetta Lands recently.

These native wildflowers are endemic to the north coast of California, from San Francisco north. So we appreciate these lovely flowers even more. They should never be picked, as the flower head turns into a seed pod. Just enjoy their beauty if you are fortunate enough to see some.

Thanks to Mary Sue for allowing me to share her photo with you here.
