Although the weather may not feel like it spring will soon turn in to summer, sometimes it is hard to see the difference, but a sure sign that the season is changing is when the coastal wildflowers come in to bloom. The Fairy Lantern graces the coastal woodlands of the Olympic Peninsula. The cream colored flowers resemble small lanterns that appear to be threaded through the edge of each leaf. One can just about imagine the wee folk dancing about under the lighted blooms.
