"Flower of the day" was Closed Gentian.
We saw them on the Lima Grade Rd. Probably, other than seeing
them, it was exciting to see how the bees opened the closed flowers
just enough to crawl in. They went in so far that you couldn't
see them. It rained early in the day and was cloudy and foggy
while we had coffee, but when we were looking at flowers it was
beautiful, and now, Wednesday evening it is raining again. It
seems that we are particularly lucky with good weather. We had
lunch at the picnic table on the Trail at Swamper Lake.
first went down to the Harbor and went out on the Breakwall.
Then we went up the Trail to the Lima Mountain Road, then North, or
right, on the Lima Grade Road.
