Wednesday, July 8th, 2009 - Report by

Today was special our friends from Georgia are here for the summer and we celebrated it with a pie for morning coffee.

Our general path was up Ball Club Road over on The Grade and down Clara Lake Road. We first went towards Pit Lake to see if that Round-leafed Orchis was still there we only found the leaves looks like no flower this year.

We had decided to go up the Brule Lake road but just passed it but that was good fortune. Just west, of the Brule Lake Road on The Grade were several bunches of Northern Green Orchids. They were still somewhat in bud. Then up the Brule Lake Road the Linnea was growing out of the rock cliff so pretty. We looked for the Michigan Lilies on the Brule Road but only found one in bud it seems a shame that someone may have dug them.

Along The Grade where we stopped to look at Iris (past their peak) but saw many Thimbleweed in bloom along with Linnea on the other of the road.

On the Yellow Hawkweed we noticed a variety of petals some were blunt but jagged on the tips others were extremely narrow.

Some of the other flowers we saw were: Bunchberry, Buttercup, Yellow & Orange Hawkweed, Ox-eye Daises, Blue Flag Iris, Purple and White Clover, Yellow Sweet Clover, Birds-foot Trefoil, Thimbleberry, Cow Parsnip, Monkey flower and One-flowered Wintergreen.

Lunch at Clara Lake boat launch.
