A set of sunflower pictures, domestic and spring wildflowers. The wild balsam root blankets Eastern Oregon hillsides—and elsewhere– in May. Balsam root has beautiful, bright yellow flowers; in fact, another common name for it is “Oregon sunflower”.
As we know now, the sunflower is the Ukrainian national flower. It is frustrating to simply post pictures to support Ukrainians. We have contributed to Mercy Corps, one of the many NGO’s providing humanitarian relief to Ukrainians, but the people need so much more.
