Last weekend I spent some time hanging out near the old site of Crescent and hiked down to South Boulder Creek. The willows and other shrubs along the shores haven’t leafed out yet, but the grasses are starting to grow. The wildflowers are getting a late start this year: First due to drought, then due to wet and gray days.
These are some seed pods left over from last year.
In the past, I’ve learned the name of this flower, but have since forgotten. It grows on a vine. I’m too lazy this morning to get out the book and look it up. 🙂
