The Trail Is In Bloom

Summertime on the Chehalis Western Trail!

Everything is green and blooming.......

Looks like we will have a GREAT crop of blackberries.

When I lived in Colorado the Fireweed did not bloom until the end of summer, but here in Washington along the trail it is blooming profusely.

Ebony likes to get in the picture

The weed I just love is the Foxglove.

I have done several paintings of this flower as I think the spots (I call freckles) are charming.

My favorite spot to sit for a break......

The view from the bench.....

I am so fortunate to have such a beautiful place to spent time on a daily basis.
