Rhody Bloom

Rhody Bloom

This is from the yard outside my office window. The native rhododendron is more purple … and the woods are full of them all blooming. It’s our state flower here in Washington.

Rock and Heather

Rock and Heather

No, this isn’t from some mountain meadow… it’s from my front yard. I love having the heather bloom all winter — giving what few bees are around some flowers to visit. The boulder was likely a glacial erratic that was on the property, but that was before my time here.

Fireweed and Snag

Fireweed and Snag

I found this fireweed growing along the North Fork Skokomish trail. I spent quite a bit of time working to get the focus to my satisfaction. Primarily, I wanted to avoid a sharp background … since that tended to distract from the fireweed. However, I wanted the snag to retain enough identifying characteristics so that it was recognizable.

Day Lily

Day Lily

This isn’t what I know as a Day Lily, but it bloomed one day and the next day it was totally gone. So, it must be a day lily, I guess.

Ghost Flowers

Ghost Flowers

Usually, I have seen these in the deep woods. I found these along the trail in Fort Worden State Park in Port Townsend.
