A Boggy Day
I found it interesting the the cycles of blooming wildflowers out by Oakland Camp seem to be peaking earlier every year, but the bog at Butterfly Botanical Area seems to be behind schedule. While the Pitcher Plants, Darlingtonia, were in full bloom, there were very few of the lilies or orchids blooming that were blooming on this date the pst few years I've checked. It was great to see the Bear Grass, though, and lots of Blue Camas lilies. I didn't take many photos, but intend to go back on the next sunny day. We did come back to Quincy to explore one of my relatively secret spots to find some blooming Stream Orchids (below).
So far in June I've managed to average one post per day. I have accumulated many more photos these past two weeks and will be posting lots more when I get time to hang out at one of our few Internet hot spots. Service at home is pathetically slow. Until tomorrow....
