Bryant Park, Albany OR
Field Search – April, 02, 2014
Checking out the aftermath of the flooded Bryant Park in Albany OR. Water has receded very much with only very shallow ponds remaining. The woodland pools help me imagine a scene of a southern swamp. Also came across a variety of edibles or soon to be. A very nice patch of English Daisy, Nettle, Lemon Mint, Bittercress, Dandelion, and an occasional Plantain. Not all were ready to eat still waiting on the soon to be Cherry, Elderberry, Rose Hips and Hawthorn.
Lewisburg Saddle, Corvallis OR
for wild edibles and specimens this late march morning in Benton County. Came across high in numbers and in full bloom the Fairy Slipper Orchid. Also spotted many other specimens such as the Rattle Snake Plantain, Yellow Fawn Lily, Trillium, and what I suspect to be the unbloomed Lady Slipper Orchid. Many great photo opportunities, I am excited to start organizing my data. CHEERS!
