Back to Bass River Rec Area

2010 09 16  We decided on Bass River again because there are open areas here, with Gentians and Ladies' Tresses (Ladies Tresses are orchids).

Fringe-tip Closed Gentian (Gentiana andrewsii)

Nodding Ladies' Tresses

Yellow Aphids

Turtle Shell Marie Found, Cool!

Monkey Flower Still blooming!

Even though it rained while we were on our adventure it was fun, and still so many plants blooming. Cardinal Flower, Everlasting Pea, Chicory, Gerardia, White Campion, Eyebane, Hoary Vervain, Sleepy Catchfly, Bouncing Bet, and More.

Oh, those beautiful Closed Gentians and the elegant spiral of the Nodding Ladies' Tresses. Cool turtle shell, well, maybe not for the turtle. The caterpillar's feet look like flowers and the lovely Monkey Flower is dancing in a purple gown. We certainly did see a lot of wildflowers. Your photos amaze me! M
