Edge, nice shot of Oysterleaf, Mertensia maritima on the Arctic coast. What's the plant in the picture just above it?

"some damn yellow composite" haha, some seem impossible to key. Jepson has some parts of a computer key ready for use that may be helpful:

Two months later the flowers of the ferry are still rockin! Check em out....











The place stills cares me, boulder-wise, hehe. What crap! To climb on. Gotta love it. Cause if you don't love it, it will kill you.

Here are some Gold Country photos too, nicely showing vernal pools and then the stuff that grows well on serpentinite soils of the Melones Fault system.





There is just something about orange lichens I find attractive. Its like nature's art.



Just doing my rounds. Us black bears gotta roam, that's all there is to it!

Nice, DMT. Nita and I used to live in Jamestown near the Grotto. Knights Ferry is an old haunt of ours. Good flower year in California.

Here's a couple from last week

Just yesterday I had a few new blooms, but didn't take time to photograph them.

Today it is freaking snowing.

hey there lolli, say... wow, thanks so very much...

some folks here, don't like them, as they spread all through their grass...
i love them, though, as they are one of the first spring flowers, and i can dig them up for free, and plant them around my tiny pond...

i will a little picture in, perhaps later, or tomorrow... some more have popped up, and i got some better pics now...

they have a tiny little opening, with a lacy flower egde that is hard to see from angle...

now i have a proper name for them, perhaps now, i can learn more about them...

once again, thanks so very much... :)









*wow, mrE.... the roses, downloaded just now, faster than last time, not sure why... but i CAN SEE THEM NOW.... very lovely!
