Looks like yellow zucchini with teeth
I found these mushrooms in the campsite near Tahsis. Unidentified mushroom, about 2 inches high.  They were growing in a deep mulch of Douglas fir needles, rotting wood, and mosses. This is true rainforest, and all the ground in the area was wet, even thoug...

It's summer, after all.
I'm back from Tahsis: an amazing trip, with intriguing plants and mushrooms, wonderful scenery, and many stories to share. And now I have unexpected company for the next four days. We're going low-tide beachcombing in the morning. So I'll probably not be bl...

The Oyster Bay Shoreline Park stretches along a narrow strip between the highway and the ocean. The beach is stony and steep, difficult to walk on, but a good place to sit on a log and listen to the waves rolling in. At the northern end, protected from the ...

Good camouflage
At the high tide line on Oyster Bay, the ground is mostly gravel or grey sand. Below, there's drying, and stinking, seaweed; above, a wide barrier of driftwood. This afternoon, I was walking along this bare stretch in the middle, and every now and then some...

A few roadside flowers
Along the seawalk: Bee on blackberry. With green blackberries. I never noticed before how the petals have hairy edges. Bee on beach pea. Bindweed and red mites. Bindweed climbing a post. I don't know what made those nice round holes. Palest pink Queen Anne'...

So soft!
The path through the protected area at Oyster Bay Shoreline Park is lined at this time of year with pale, pinkish, fuzzy balls, about the size of beans, held ankle height on stiff stems. Down on my knees, they looked like a clover, but no clover I'd ever se...

Coffee break drop-in
She waits by the coffee press ... "None for me, thanks. A juicy fly would hit the spot, though." I always feel like petting the cheetah-skin back; they look so soft!
