July 11th, 2015

It was a very cool day. It was a nice break from the heat. I think these bumble bees were caught out in the cold. (at least I hope that is why they were very lethargic!) I offered them some water, they eventually flew away.


This one didn't seem able to put her tongue back in her mouth.




There was also a lady bug!


More wild teasel was blooming. It certainly is a strange plant....




There was a thistle:


a daisy:


and Queen Ann's Lace (Daucus carota, at least I think it is.....)


And hooray! Our friend Ian came for a visit! He moved to Portland about a month ago. It was good to finally see him!
