Yesterday afternoon, I attended my aunt's birthday party, but I was so busy singing, eating, and visiting, that I didn't get any pictures. This is unusual for me, well, not the eating and visiting part, but rather the part about not getting any pictures. Sadly, I didn't even think of it.
But after I left, I went out by myself to dig some bitterroots. Admittedly, it's a little late for that, because later in the season, bitterroots are harder to peel.
At the same time, saw some flowers I didn't know.
Can anyone identify these plants?
Jennifer, this photograph shows the orange
'heart' at the center of the bitterroot.
As I left, the elk stopped to watch.
A road sign in Salish:
"qeqs čštim čyaʔtin."
"Let's take care of _____."
The last word is unclear to me.
Seems like it refers to something scarce,
perhaps like scarce resources,
or something protected,
which would be appropriate
for an 'Adopt A Roadway' sign.
Robert, do you know the exact translation?
Jennifer, these are the peeled bitterroots.
