The Common Camas, Camassia quamash, was an important food source for the native Americans who dug the bulbs in the autumn, roasted or boiled them and sometimes ground them up for flour. These were photographed in Washington Park on Fidalgo Island, where they are common, but there are other areas where they cover whole meadows.
