Back To The Promontory

Recently Me, Dad, and grampa Charlie went back to the promontory.

The Smooth Yellow Violets(above) had become much more abundant than last time. However the Snow Queen(below) were much less abundant than before. The Trilliums(below below) were mostly in decline.

Calypso Orchid
It's one of my favorite flowers.
The 'unbloomed promontory flower' (pictured above) bloomed into
The pattern on the lilie's leaves faded since we last saw it.

The view from the promontory is spectacular! I'm not saying there's anything wrong with domestic flowers, but wildflowers just seem to have a special charm and mystique to them.
These plum pits were atop the promontory and no one knows how they got there. They've apparently traveled all the way from the orchard(that's several miles).I suspect bear involvement.
