5/27/14 City Forest

Gray, cold ( 50's) morning with rain forecast. Went to the forest in hopes of getting in a hike before the rain. We were on and off the West Trail and the rail bed, exploring some of the side trails. Kelley was happy, with  water everywhere and we met several people and three dogs. The rain held off and we got in a nice two hour hike.

First Lady's Slipper of the year- there were only a few in one little clump and none of the pink ones yet.


  1. Hi John... It was 42 when I got up this morning and this rain is getting old!!
    It seems when the apple trees , and other blooming trees come out it always rains and they don't last long!!

    I find it a odd spring so far!!
    The wild flowers are lovely especially love the last one "Bird on the Wing"!!


    1. Hi Grace- Thanks for commenting. Yes, the rain and the cold mornings are getting old- an odd spring, indeed- hard for our hiking and I'm behind on my garden. Thanks for ID on the last one.
