Super baby bunny

SBB_1243

Wait, whats that rustling in the bushes.
A bird..no
A mouse…no
It’s super baby bunny!

Smaller than a squirrel yet bigger than a mouse with quadruple  the cuteness of both. Mightily hopping onto rocks and eating every plant that gets in their way.

Super baby bunny brings brightness to start the day.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Triteleia Grandiflora

One of the more unusual wildflowers we see each summer is Triteleia Grandiflora.

The tall slender stalk with only one or two basal leaves spring up out of grassy areas and are capped with a cluster of delicate yet hardy and unusual looking purple-blue flowers.

A native to the pacific northwest east of the cascade mountains from Oregon into Montana, Wyoming, Utah and Idaho. We have see it growing in open Prairies and up into mountain foothills. Usually it seems that each plant is widely spaced from it’s neighbors or many times we see a single plant spring up far from others of its own species.

It’s always fun to photograph these each spring and this years we have noticed greater numbers of Triteleia Grandiflora blooming than in the previous years.

My Stump!


As we moved into our campsite for the evening this chubby ground squirrel let it be known loud and clear this was his stump and not to be used for a place to put our camp stove.

And in case we weren’t listening ….this is My Stump!

Have a great weekend.
