June 15 We had a fun day at Muskegon State Park!
We saw Bur Reed.
We even saw a pink flamingo...
Back on the trail we found lots of Cow Wheat blooming.
Some wild Cranberry was blooming, and in the water were cranberries.
In places the shore was red with sundew...
Since it was cloudy, most of the Blue Eyed Grass had their petals closed. Here is one open that I found.
There were so many Fragrant White Water Lily.
Also a few Yellow Pond Lily.
We checked on the Rose Pogonia Orchid, but as I thought, we were just a little early for bloom time. Still fun to find. Below is a photo of this plant blooming from a previous year.
Some other things we saw...
Frostweed, always nice to see this sunny flower.
So we left this cool Lake, the weather was getting more threatening, darker clouds, maybe a rumble of thunder. I was ready to go to another place to explore, and we came up with Riverside Park in North Muskegon along the north branch of the Muskegon River.
Here there are ball fields, play grounds, picnic tables, but keep walking and you find some curious steps leading to a jungle.
It did storm while we were out but we made it back up through the "jungle" just fine. And we saw more Blue Eyed Grass.
Another great day! Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed our walks!
