Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow
We have a plant in Northridge that really has that common name, yesterday, today, tomorrow. It blooms deep violet, then becomes lavender, then white.
This is the great and rare white iris we took pictures of a few days ago.
Yesterday on our elk hike I didn't mention what Molly discovered hidden in a shrub in the dandelion wetlands: a baby elk! When she found it she put her nose on it and the baby let out a weird eek sound. We thought Molly had found a bird's nest, because a few species nest on the ground here. We just took a few pictures, not wanting to stress it.
Molly was so good just to point it out but not try to eat it.
We worried about the baby being in such an exposed meadow, and walked the same general hike today but didn't go near where the baby had been lying.
Well surprise surprise, when we came over the ridge look what we saw running away. The baby elk was able to keep up with its group.
