Two Boat Pond
Now this is just strange. A few miles out of Gold River, there is a pond beside the highway. Just another of hundreds of nondescript water holes in the rainforest; half swamp, half brownish water, shallow enough to wade if the bottom is solid, which I doubt...

When purple is green
When they're babies, purple shore crabs come in all colours from creamy yellow to green to red or even bluish. Most adults are purple or green. Green shore crabs are mostly in shades of green, although some are dark red or purple. Otherwise, they look like ...

More, more, more!
These warm days, the bees are like kids at a birthday party; too excited to rest, diving into a bowl of ice cream, bustling off to the next treat, and the next, never stopping. Until exhaustion sets in and they (the kids and the bees) buzz more and more slo...

Wild and sweet
June is the month for flowers in the north woods. The growing season is short; the snow has barely melted along the higher slopes, and the days will be getting shorter from now on. Time's a-wasting! And the bears want their berries! (I tasted my first huckl...

On shrubs and subs
In the cities, we plant floral borders to our walkways. Alongside our human paths in the deep forests, where we've cleared away the duff and rotting branches, the borders plant themselves. Seen this trip; lichens and mosses, wild strawberries and the tiny n...

Very blue
Flowers so blue that the name of the shrub just had to be "blue blossom". Ceanothys thyrsiflorus, aka California lilac. Native to California and Oregon, common here. The lilacs have bloomed and faded. Now, the blue blossom takes over and will bloom through ...

Moon jellies
At the marina, one afternoon last week, the currents had brought in a swarm of moon jellies. I discovered one in the deep shade between a boat and the dock. Aurelia labiata . Large male, about 5 inches across. Out in the open, the jellies are foggy blobs wi...

Then a raven said, "Wow!"
I was running errands; groceries, hardware, and a last, quick stop at the beach to collect driftwood for a cat tower. I had loaded the car and was just about to leave. But then, a raven said, "Wow!" It was a clear "Wow", but louder and hoarser than most hum...

I don't know. I just don't know. In my little patch of dirt, I dig and rake, I cultivate and weed. I provide bags of fresh topsoil and peat moss; I build compost and pour on fish fertilizer. I check the requirements; sunshine and shade, water, eggshells, bu...

Buttle Lake
Lake. Hills. Sky. What more can you say? From the north end of the lake, looking south. Mt. McBride? Looking north. Reflected sky Daisies at the Lupin Falls trailhead. Another look at those rock faces. With small waterfall. A Skywatch post.

I took another trip to Gold River and back, this time with my daughter and her husband. We were in no hurry; we drove down inviting side roads, dawdled along trails with interesting names, crawled over rocks and poked through the duff under evergreens. Thre...

Purple pea pods
Beach pea, already making seeds. Lathyrus japonicus, Frank James park. The pods are black when they're ripe. GPS coordinates, 49.97, -125.2. I just learned that Google maps will give me this info if I just click on the map. Very handy.
