One of my favorite summer wildflowers is the Leopard Lily, Lilium pardalinum. Bob Rutemoeller and Mary Sue Ittner found a nice group of them recently.

Never pick these beauties, just enjoy their splash of color wherever you might be fortunate enough to see them.

Thanks to Mary Sue and Bob for allowing me to share their photos with you here.

Barbara Rice found a nice group of Leopard Lilies, Lilium pardalinum. These beautiful lilies are also called Tiger Lilies.

Here's a close-up of this beautiful native with a Swallowtail butterfly feeding. This photo was taken by Peter Baye and is included in my beautiful book, Mendonoma Sightings Throughout the Year. It also shows that native plants feed native critters.
