    Beautiful pictures. Now I need names. I think I saw sea thrift and maybe paint brush, but what are the yellow ones?

    The yellow are Mimulus maybe M. guttatis?

    I think the white flowers belong to a small Amelanchier (not the whitish deer lichen).

    But what are the little purple flowers?

    Eric, The white centers on the purple ones make me think of the speedwells, but the picture is unclear. Are any of the speedwells native?

    Yellow - Mimulus as commented already, tall white - camasia, purple seems to be a type of alium, there are also fritillaria "Chocolate Lilly". Sorry not to be more specific, my other half knows the names, I just take the pictures.

    NB there are also some non-native bluebells.

    All the plants in the pictures are native except for the bluebells as far as I know.
