Highways and Byways

I love walking along our country lane. We live on the edge of a forest and there are always interesting plants that grow on the side of the road. Here are just a few of them I spotted today as I took the dogs for a walk.

This is wild orange honeysuckle.(Lonicera ciliosa for the botanists !)

And here is a pretty wild rose. Possibly called a Nootka rose too. I'm not sure of the latin name for it.

And hiding in the shade, these little red columbines. (Aquilegia Truncata)

It's really a very nice day on the coast. Warm and sunny with a light westerly breeze. I'm going to spend some time outside.
