June 11th, 2008 Wildflower Report

Postby LorraineA » Thu Jun 12, 2008 8:03 am

Wednesday June 11, 2008: We woke Friday morning to find MANY places in the county flooded. Snow plows cleared debris off Highway 61.

Today was a dreary, cold day with sprinkles and sunshine. The wild fruit trees are in full force. We first went down by the Power Plant to see if we could find Butterwort and couldn’t find any - but the mystery white flower of last week was Hoary Alyssum after all. It looked as though there were seedpods where there were no flowers – not possible? The Croftville rd (much damage there from the flood) showed the Swedish colors: blue forget-me-nots and yellow Winter Cress. We saw our first Clintonia and Buttercup and second Star Flower of the season. It seems as though things are late because of the cold weather.

Lunch just off the Ward Lake rd. looking toward a Maple Mountain.
