Native Wildflowers.

Four years ago we began to eradicate Himalayan Blackberry that had completely taken over a hillside on the property. Last year some native species began to show up. Here are three that are blooming now.

Rose Checkermallow, Oregon Iris and Forget-me-not.

She flew in literally seconds before I took the shot. I think she helps balance the flower buds on the right.

Thank you Heinrich. It means a lot to a newcomer to hear a positive comment from a long time Pentaxian.

We had a lot of help from a group called the Long Tom Watershed Council. Dedicated to restoring fish habitat and the removal of invasive non native species to give native species a better chance. They have quite a few projects going on in the area. It's very satisfying for us to see more native plants popping up and spreading around. Thanks for looking.
