Short, but lots of flowers
I went back to a route I did a few times in May because it's a nice, short loop with some elevation and a few views. Along the way was this excellent specimen of mountain dandelion. It turns out this baby is native and a little unusual (I've seen a few of them this year, but not in easily photographed spots), unlike its ubiquitous yellow cousin, which is an import.
The run was uneventful so I'll post a couple more big pictures, then my little guys.
Don't know what this grass is, but it's odd. I saw several clumps of it today in the middle of the long-unused road bed. It's fuzzy on the bottom and has a little brown seed cluster at the top.
I'm printing this one large just because the little pink/white flowers are a little hard to see. I am pretty sure this is something called twinflower. These flower-picture blog entries, by the way, are taking longer than my usual ones and I may tire of it. That's because I have to try to figure out what all of the flowers are. I'm not always successful.
There may be too many flowers together for it to be a huck, but who knows?
Pleasant trot; now back to my carpentry project.
