remnants of a walk

It was like a magical walk last weekend.

We saw a burrowing owl,

an american kestral

P1000237

elk, as well as an osprey, an eagle-like thing, a woodpecker, seals, an interesting sparrow, western bluebirds, iris, ravens, a hawk of some sort,

poppy

and an early poppy. But there were also signs remaining from the people who used to live out there, including

calla lilies where no calla lilies should be,

P1000248

as well as this (I don’t know what they’re called),

P1000247

and this amazing remnant of what might have been a living arbor.

It was lovely.

Where will we go next week? I’m already thinking about it.

  1. The flame coloured flowers are called Montbretia in the UK and grow all over the cliffs in Cornwall so I associate them with my childhood. Apparently, in America you call them Coppertips or Falling Stars which are lovely names.

  2. Good lord, you are shot in the arse with NAY-CHUR! A veritable cornucopia of it!!

    I myself am shot in the arse with snow. Got another dusting this morning. Can’t complain — it’s lovely, too.
