We ventured to Eugene yesterday for the Mt. Pisgah Arboretum Wildflower Festival. It was a sweet affair, with booths for selling treats of the edible, garden, and treasure variety. We ate and drank, bought some gifts, and walked the paths to spy as many varieties of wildflower as we could. We saw fourteen in the wild and countless others on educational display, which I wish I had looked at before hiking around, so I would not have gotten quite so close to the poison oak. Thankfully this silly goose only touched the flowers!
That’s Camas pictured above
This tree was more than 400 years old when it met its demise. The hubster is 6’1″ for reference – the awe of creation!
The Oak Savannah
Tiny and yellow – I wish I knew the name.
Bracken Fern Fiddleheads
Wild Yellow Pea
Crab Spider on a Daisy
The hubster teased me for defying the principles of the Prime Directive by knocking the spider off the blossom. Anything for the bees…
