(For what it’s worth, this hike is misnamed as there are no rattlesnakes in the western portion of Washington.)
I happened upon this small flower on the side of a public road near a trail head. So much gorgeous color in something not much bigger than a dime..
My son and I are Beach Watchers. Among other activities, we gather with other volunteers at our local beaches at low tide and offer information about the flora and fauna that live in the intertidal zone.
Yesterday was our first beach day in well over a year, and it was wonderful to be back. These are just a few of the surprises the Sound revealed. (The identifications are my best, researched opinions.)
My husband and I drove to the coast for a walk. I had a particular spot in mind, but, while trying to find that spot, we came upon this wonderful little park where someone had apparently planted a wildflower mix. A lovely surprise.

This is a one-in-a-million photo. A second later, Loki was eating that violet.
