Wildflower Wednesday 04/06/2016


Foxglove, Moran State Park, Orcas Island, WA

My first wilderness experience in Washington was during a hike at Moran State Park on Orcas Island.  I had never seen a flower like the foxglove before, and here they speckled the trailside.  It was during this very first trip to WA in 2011 that I fell in love and knew I had to live here.  One year later my husband, our cat Lucy, and I packed up everything we owned and moved across the country to start a new life.  My only regret is that we waited too long to get here.
