Writer in the Woods

Yes, that is me. As you can see my hair does not like the moisture in my beloved Olympic National Forest! (Does Rosanna, Rosanna, Danna ring a bell?) Since I haven't posted on Thursdays for awhile, I thought I would share a few nature photos of the vegetation near our cabin. Each week, for the rest of the summer, I will share a new plant.

Our first example of indigenous vegetation in the rain forest is the Salmonberry, blooming in early summer. It is a favorite food not only of birds and bears, but of my husband, Michael, too! He enjoys having his hot oatmeal with a scattering of salmonberries on top. Since this berry is rarely used commercially, it is that much more enjoyed by the local folks.
