5/26/13 City Forest

It's been mostly rain here for the past week and the past few days we have mostly walked around the neighborhood or downtown in the rain ( there is a flood watch in effect) . This morning it stopped and looked like it might clear so we went to the forest and got in two hours without rain. We even had a couple of glimpses of sun but by the time we got back to the car it was raining again. Still a good outing- water everywhere for Kelley, people to greet and dogs to meet. Too much talking by me so only a few pictures.

I don't know this one- but Grace did- Wild Rhododendron 


New leaves

I liked the meandering trail but if you look lower left you will see two geese.


  1. Nice flowers! Especially the first purple one. Hope your weather clears up and you don't get flooded.

    1. Thanks for your comment Linda

  2. Hi John....Your first flower is what I always called Wild Rhododendron !! It is gorgeous!!

    Lovely time of year isn't it!! The new leaves with the rain on them is very nice!!

    1. Hi Grace- thanks for the ID and your comment. It is a lovely time of year. We needed the rain but I think we've had enough.

  3. We've been dealing with on and off rain here for a week and the weather guessers are calling for another week of it. Oh well, try to get out when you can. Looks like the flora is healthy, though!

    1. Thanks for commenting Casey- no rain today and it has made things lusher.
