Wednesday's Walk

I got off to a late start today.
So let's take a mid-morning stroll.

Butter and Eggs or Yellow Toadflax (naria vulgaris)



Acorn have started to fall.

Lots more up in the trees.

Oak Galls

Sword Fern

The Ash are among the first trees to change color.

Hard to beat Vine Maple for color.

All thick grass down at the edge of the Big Creek.


Bitter Cherry

Bracken Fern


...and more Cascara.

I saw several birds including a Downy Woodpecker, Black-capped and Chestnut-backed Chickadees, a Wilson's Warbler, and a Vireo.  But the only photo is of a Steller's Jay.

Apple tree at the edge of the forest. 

Native Dogwood

Wild Honeysuckle

That Chickory blossom is very pretty. The acorns seem to be plentiful this year. Gorgeous blue coloring on the Stellar's Jay!

Leaves starting to turn.... I'm in shock! Wasn't it just spring last week? Beautiful colors on your walk!
