Well though I've been very neglectful here, I have made trips out in God's gardens (and of course spent a lot of time here at home in our little bit of His gardens). So how about --- forest flowers and such from a recent trip I took with a family member?
I love wildflowers! I'm not 100% sure about the flowers in the first photo, but the pink ones (second photo) are wild bleeding hearts. I have several other photos of them but liked this one the best because of the beautiful foliage. Green is so 'IN' -- in the NW!
In the same general area, midst the ferns and other forest foliage, was a native dogwood tree. You see lots of the 'cultivated' pink and mauve dogwood in towns and cities of the NW, but I am quite partial to our native, white dogwood.
This sight was pretty surprising! I wouldn't worry about our little feline friend though---I'm pretty sure he made it home that night as there were some homes we passed on the way up to this place.
A pretty waterfall on the hillside above the river. Lots of moss and ferns here. It is no wonder I like our native moss and ferns so well.
