Wednesday, June 28th, 2006 - Report by

We were hoping to see Iris today and each place we went to they were getting old until the patch on the Grade. It was a warm, sunny, lazy day and we just drove around and walked here and there.

If you joined us for lunch (at 3:00 ) we were at the Cascade River Forest Campground perching on our small folding chairs eating and pouring through our books. You see, we are older and forget much each year only to re-learn again. We picked some samples earlier (only if there were many). Is it Alfalfa or purple clover, Meadow Rue, Early or Tall, Avens or Cinquefoil, Thimbleweed - which species ?? The bugs chased us into the car and on our way.

On the way home we took Bally Creek and saw ever so many Linnea (Twin-flower).

The roadsides are so colorful but I think that Linnea and Early MeadowRue will be the flowers of the week.

See what we found last year at this time of year!
