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.
Really nice to see the fresh greens of the new growth. It makes it seem like spring is really here. (even though as I write this it is cool and raining)
This was at Fort Worden State Park, Port Townsend, WA.
