My day started in our wildflower/perennial garden.
But the sky was so blue and it was so warm-
it called for a field trip and
I knew exactly where I wanted to go...
It was a place I had found on the Internet that had most of my fav things
and a waterfall
(I SO should have brought a tripod)
some historical places--one being the very road we were on
(but the rest will have to wait for another post because we never found
one of the places we were looking for)
YEA! Another road trip:)
The amazing, beautiful, wonderful, totally awesome
color of the PNW in spring:)
the yellow of scotchbroom which was all over--
once we found the right road that is
(I, of course, had left my map and carefully written directions--
you guessed it--at home)!
(I am NOT even going to mention the green of the trees, ferns and other vegetation--
this is the western PNW after all and we have had MONTHS of rain!
I will say this is our payoff after suffering through all
those gray, wet, cold days though:)
This is either a wild astilbe or spirae.
(BTW--please feel free to correct me if I am wrong!)
the rest will have to wait till later because I've got to get some sleep :)
