So my dear husband and I take a quick tour of Margo Frankel Woods' west side. Our quick survey tells us that it is NOT a good candidate for placing a geocache. It is cool, but the east side of the park is better suited for caching. And I had high hopes (read the last paragraph of this post from 2007). I am frequently torn -- excellent wild places that I'm not sure should be disturbed.
After the survey-tour, I went poking around and photographing Dutchman's breeches at the homeplace.
Mostly good memories. Then I notice a few of these:
This flower is pink and its stem is erect. Yellow and drooping is normal for Dutchman's breeches. I'm not finding any information in my reference books, field guides, or the internet for pink petals. My guess at the moment is a local variation. Does anyone out there in bloggerland have an idea about this?
