Skagit’s tulip fields may be clipped of their color, but Fidalgo is all a-bloom now. This is wildflower season, and if you haven’t yet given yourself the gift of a meadow walk, head out to Sugarloaf, or the south bluffs of Washington Park and Bowman Bay, to name just a few choice spots. Look for Indian paintbrush, blue and death camas lilies, monkeyflower, sea blush, shooting stars and so much more. Take a field guide and get to know the stories behind the names. The more we learn to love the wonders at our elbow (or in this case, our feet), the more we’ll walk in joy, and the more we’ll walk with care.
