Captured these images from a meadow off Mt Eddy, about an hour’s drive north of Redding. Very pretty.

The species have basal clumps of leaves and nodding flowers that are produced at the top of tall stems rising from where the leaves join the crown. The genus is largely confined to North America and part of northeastern Siberia. Common names include shooting star, American cowslip, mosquito bills, mad violets, and sailor caps.”

Mad Violets. They’re Really Redding.
