Madrona, Salal and Rhody

Madrona, Salal and Rhody

The Rhododendron is the state flower of Washington. Salal and Madrone are allow common … especially the salal. I have a lot of salal growing in my yard (growing wild) and it is a nice ground cover. This was taken along the Larry Scott Trail (a converted rail right-of-way). There is also a leaf or two from the low-growing native blackberry … which make the best pie, by far.

Daisy Daisy

Daisy, Daisy

These are wild growing daisies that are really common. I liked the raindrops on them … and the way they weren’t all chewed by bugs (yet).

Trillium (B&W)

Trillium (B&W)

One of the last trillium of the year (at sea level, anyway). I liked the Black and White image better than the color. One of those things that you can feel, even if you can’t explain why.

High Water Mark

Okay, so I exaggerate… This boat was brought to this location by trailer and is going to be used as a guest house / studio. In the near foreground (outside the image) is the access road they have built.

This is along a fairly remote section of the Larry Scott Trail south of Port Townsend. It would be a lovely quiet location for spending some time relaxing and decompressing.

Trillium — Long in the Tooth

Trillium — Long in the Tooth

I really enjoy Trillium … they signal the beginning of the flower season to me. The petals turn purple when they are getting old (see the newer blooms in the background). This one is also carrying a lot of tree pollen. My eyes were sure scratchy by the time I was done with my walk.
