Outdoor Wednesday. . .Has Another Week Really Gone By Already?? MESA FALLS in IDAHO

It was so lush and pretty because we had an unusual amount of rain this spring! And you should smell the 'fresh air', it's so much better than any 'fabric softener' out there.
Looking across the falls you can see a rock wall that has this amazing greenery growing out of it. .
I thought these were pretty little white flowers so I had to get an upclose picture. Hubby asked me if I knew what kind of flower it was. . .He said it had very poisinous roots and people had actually died from eating them, ok then. . .not such a pretty little flower any more:(!
So, if you see these pretty flowers, look but DON'T touch. . .(Water Hemlock) the roots at least!

We are blessed to live in an area where you can get in your car and in an hour or less, you can be looking at the most 'delishsus' scenery, it's amazing!!!! So whenever we can slip away, we flip a coin to decide which direction to drive, and away we goooo. . .These pictures are from Mesa Falls, in Island Park, Idaho. . .just a few weeks ago.
Happy Outdoor Wednesday hosted by the lovely Susan at
