Mariposa Lily~Calochortus

 Every year I am so happy to see these bloom!
I can still remember the first time I saw one,
they are so exotic looking
it seems funny that they are so common.
 I was just informed that the root is edible and tastes like a raw potato.
I looked it up online, and sure enough,
the native peoples ate them and so did the early Mormon settlers.
