A little brown rabbit was munching his way through the flowering Miner’s Lettuce and paused just long enough for a couple of pictures. We saw lots of flowering weeds and a few native plants in bloom also. We were lucky enough to walk with someone well versed in native plants and weeds adding a few more plants by sight but it will be a while before I have memorized all the names. It is still early in the season for flowers more things will be blooming in the coming weeks. Apologies in advance if some of the plants are not named as they should be, corrections are welcome.
Oregon grape, low growing variety
Red Dead Nettle
Miner’s Lettuce and Candy Stripe
Chambers Bay, also called Chambers Creek, is a very large pretty park with a visitor’s center and nice rest rooms not just port-a-potties. Along one area of the park are the remains of buildings from the gravel works that stand up huge and look like something from a movie set or Stonehenge re-visited. There is also a large playground for children complete with a castle.
