~ Cee’s Flower Of The Day Challenge ~

Often on my trecks through forests and trails I see flora that is fascinating and I just have to take a picture to commemorate the life forms I’m seeing.

Like these colonies of toadstools nestled among ferns, moss and Bearberry.

And, the bright red foliage of Beach strawberries (Fragaria chiloensis) that grow along the upper edges of beaches in Washington and Oregon.

I love coming across a patch of blooming yellow sand verbena (Abronia latifolia), a perennial herb. Native to California, it is only found along the coasts of western North America.

    Wonderful how the little mushrooms collected the droplets of rain to add a bit of reflection to your photo. Dune plants are the best… often we find unexpected treasures. Just as you have shown ❤
