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!
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.)
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.
A couple of valley views. Number 1 is farmland off the Larry Scott Trail. Number 2 is looking southwest across the Chinese Gardens (there’s no gardens there anymore … refers to their historic location) in Fort Worden State Park.
This is a section of the Larry Scott Trail in Jefferson Co, WA. This section of the trail is converted from an old railroad bed … it follows the rail grade for a while, then winds its way back and forth, sometimes following the grade and sometimes having to take a detour around private property. Rails to Trails has been a great method for adding hundreds of miles of trail in Washington and other locations.
