Lyle WA: What a difference a week will make. Marvin and I drove to Catherine Creek today. A strong breeze (15 mph) didn’t help in photographing the flowers but wind sheltered areas gave us a chance. The Grass Widows were a little past prime but we found plenty of opportunities. Oregon Sunshine were in bloom as well as Yellow Bells.
We were delighted to find this tiny Mimulus growing on a rocky bank.
Whitlow-grass was blooming in profusion… and we found a number of mosses including the one I couldn’t get to behave last week. It was a good day.
