I was fortunate enough to go for another beautiful run on Monday morning. I ran 14 miles in Forest Park, here in Portland in preparation for my upcoming marathon. Forest Park is one of the largest urban parks in the country. This time of year is marked by many spring wildflowers that bloom under the forest canopy. If you haven't gathered from previous posts, I love looking at and identifying plants. Here are some of the native flowers that I found on my run today. As always, enjoy!
|Western Trillium (Trillium ovatum)|
|Pacific waterleaf (Hydrophilum tenuipes)|
|Stream Violet (Viola glabella)|
|Miner's Lettuce/Candy Flower (Claytonia sibirica)|
|Salmonberry (Rubus spectabilis)|
|False Soloman's Seal (Maianthemum racemosum)|
