Flowers with a Coincidence

Larry Scott Trail flowers

Those of you who have followed this blog (and maybe even read my ramblings) know that I have shared several images of the bouquets that are posted (!) along the Larry Scott Trail outside of Port Townsend. It so, here’s another one. The coincidence referred to in the title, is that last month at the Port Townsend Photo Club meeting a new face offered to let people come and take photos on their property … they have a nice bit of well-tended forest and some horses. When I found out where they lived, I asked if they were who shared the bouquets, and they were the back-up flower tender. A nice person doing nice things. Our world needs more of that!

Beach Grass

Beach Grass 1

These are both images of grass along the beach. The top one has the grass growing almost on a vertical bank with just a few green shoots coming up through the yellowed remains. It was taken with my iPhone, while the bottom image was taken with a film camera. You can see the film grain pretty clear in it, especially in the sky. Also, the wind was blowing the grass below … but in both you can see the effects of the wind.



I saw this wild rhody blooming along the Larry Scott Trail near Port Townsend … just before PT’s big Rhody Weekend (with parade, kids’ trike race, beard contest, etc.). This is the native rhody, which is the Washington State flower. (There are a fair number of them growing in the woods along SR 19 coming into town.)

Spring Bouquet

Whoever the nice person is that keeps placing bouquets on this post along the Larry Scott Trail in Port Townsend, WA, I really appreciate the effort. I thought this one was particularly nice, but they get replaced frequently. I wonder if the deer came up and ate the tulips. They sure munch on any that are growing outside my fenced area.

Horse Face

Horse Face

No, not an insult (used in Game of Thrones, once or twice) … this guy was nice enough to stand still while looking at me. There was a fence between us … but he was still hoping that I would share a treat.

I obeyed the sign and didn’t offer anything.

This was taken at one of the small farms along the Larry Scott Trail south of Port Townsend, WA.
