Plants

On June 20, I hiked to the Inside Hawke Hills behind my house in Holyrood.  As I hiked, I noticed that the three highest hills were shrouded in thick fog, so I decided to take a different trail to a group of hills that aren't quite as high. 

There were several types of flowers growing near the top of the inside Hawke Hills behind my house in Holyrood.  Today you will see rhodora, bog laurel, caribou moss and others.

Pink Lady's Slipper












Pink Lady's Slipper

On June 20, I hiked to the Inside Hawke Hills behind my house in Holyrood.  As I hiked, I noticed that the three highest hills were shrouded in thick fog, so I decided to take a different trail to a group of hills that aren't quite as high. 

When I sat down for a break near the top of one of the hills, I noticed a pink lady's slipper that had been broken off.  I was surprised to see these flowers near the top of the hills where it is usually windy and cool.

As I looked around, I found 8 more of these beautiful flowers in the moss around me. Of course, I made photos of these hardy little wildflowers.

My Yard 4, June 12, 2017















My Yard 4, June 12, 2017

I have been telling people that our Spring is way behind other years, however, when I go back through my photos, it isn't that far off.  Some years, we have a great month of May and Spring comes early.  This year, May was cold and windy with little rain.  We had a little rain overnight, but we need quite a bit.  My little brook is just about dry and has only a trickle of water.  Very unusual for this time of the year.

Today, I shared miscellaneous photos from around my yard.  The photos of the mountain show the hills that I hike to on a regular basis.

Today, I shared photos of dandelions and bees that enjoy the early pollen and nectar.
