Wednesday's Wet Walk

It has been a very odd September in western Oregon. Cooler and wetter than the past several years.  From Monday through Tuesday we had 2.5" of rain and it is raining today.  Onward! 

Teasel with a backdrop of blackberries.

This Hawthorn is loaded with berries.

Here's a close up.

The wet weather has been hard on the blackberries - they mold easily.

Hazel catkins

Big Leaf Maples are still green, but their seeds are ready to fly away.

Iris tenax and dark brown seeds pods - they've already burst open.

The result of lots of moisture - zillions of little plants/grasses have germinated. 


Lots of fruit on the crab apple this year. 

Poison oak turns pretty colors in the fall.

Douglas fir cone.
Oops - it's started to rain again - let's go back inside.

Everything is still looking lush and green, Beth! We had a bit of rain yesterday; just enough to perk up some of the greenery.

What a nice walk. The season is hanging very nice and slow!
