Answer to the plant queston

A couple of people identified this "cute" little plant that grows here in Pine Valley as Death Camus, (Toxicoscordion venenosum--also named Mountain Death Camus or Foothill Death Camus.) Because of their appearance, they have sometimes been confused with wild onion, but these are extremely dangerous for both humans and livestock (and I'm assuming for all animals.) Good to know; I will definitely NOT try to propagate them for my garden!
