Wishing Everyone a Most Happy Mother's Day!
About two miles to the west, there is a pretty hillside.
It is special as it is an Oak Savannah rimmed by wet meadows.
It is the perfect place for a Red-winged Blackbird to sing away.
And it is the perfect place for Arrowleaf Balsamroot (Balsamorhiza sagittata) to grow.
I waited a bit too long to stop and take a photograph or two.
Nonetheless I still think the flowers are lovely.
The Columbia Gorge is famous for its wildflowers including the spring display of Arrowleaf Balsamroot.
And I had only to walk up the road about 100 feet to come across this amazing display of Menzie's Larkspur (Delphinium menziesii).
A small sea of purple.
And such delicate flowers too.
I hope you enjoyed my Country Mother's Day Bouquet.
