A Pathetic Bloom

Our extremely wet and cold spring has sure taken a toll on all the spring growth.

Plants that normally would be strong and vigorous by now are still struggling to break out of winter.

The hay fields are very slow to start growing, if the cold and wet continues hay season may be a week or two late this year.

A bloom on a salmonberry bush.This sad little salmonberry bloom, a native plant to Northwestern Oregon, sits on a bush that is only about 4 inches tall. Normal years have this plant waist high before blooms start growing. The stunted plants may not have a enough stamina to produce much fruit this year.
