After about 1.5 hours, this is the view we got!
My husband makes fun of me (in a teasing sort of way) for how excited I get about the pretty little flowers. He says I notice things about them that no normal person would notice. Or maybe I just describe the flowers in weird ways. For example, I said the below violet "has a pointed part like an elf hat". I don’t think I've heard too many people describe flowers that way.
I don't know if you can tell, but the back part is the "elf-hat" part.
Of course, we did see a flower called, "Dutchman's breeches" (they do look like those big, poofy Dutch pants) so flower people can't be entirely normal, and maybe my exuberance and weird descriptions is merely a symptom of being a flower person.
Whatever it is, I wanted to share a few of my flower photos. I have photos of flowers from pretty much every vacation we've been on and a lot of our hikes too (but I'll limit this post to my recent hike). I hope you think they're as pretty as I do.
After we got back, I found out this flower is called a "Red Trillium"
Trout Lilies. They have spotted leaves that look sort of trout-like.
Red Trillium again.
And, just for fun, here's my hubby throwing a rock.
A big splash followed. Fortunately, I wasn't in the line of fire.
