Scenic Bits from Various Hikes

I’ve been (for quite awhile now) failing at posting about recent hikes.

So here are some pictures from the past month or so.

Sunday Flower Pr0n: Maine-ly Rhododendrons

When I said that Maine seemed to have a thing about Rhododendrons, I wasn’t kidding. This was an entire garden dedicated to them.

This is actually a common wild Rhododendron, which I had never seen before.

This counts as a tree frog, right?

Rhododendron was surprisingly popular in Maine.

They had a fairy garden section, which was cute.

But mostly I just liked the rocks.

I’m trying to post more frequently here.

Not a lot of success, but I’m trying.

So as your reward, here is some flower pr0n from the Arboretum!

I never see a lot of bloodroot flowers, so I’m generally excited when I spot one.

Just a couple of delphiniums were up

Sunday Flower Pr0n: Mountain Laurel

I GOT TO GO TO THE WOODS YESTERDAY!

Why is this exciting? Because it’s been five weeks already since I broke my foot, and since the weather was lovely, I put on my foot, grabbed my crutches, and we took a short hike at Coopers Rock.

It was LOVELY to be in the forest. Especially since one of my favorite flowers was on display.
