Nature walk finds on Monday, May 8, ’23

Weather this Monday afternoon was breezy and sunny, a perfect kind of day to get some fresh air. We found new flower specimens, plants, and birds on our walk.

Vinca Major. Greater Periwinkle
Claytonia parviflora, native to California. Abundant here with varying sizes. Some were turning yellow and not as lush green as this one.
Pineapple weed. New small growths on the walking path. I wonder how tall and bushy they will become over time.
Hairy vetch

Thank you for visiting, dear readers! Have a wonderful start to a new day and hope you find moments of refreshment throughout your day. ~Esther

Welcome to my blog! My name is Esther and I'm so happy you are here. I'm an avid nature photographer and a daydreaming thinker. My posts revolve around photos of nature's beauty, homeschooling adventures with my 2 kids, sporadic reflections on my child's heart condition, Bible reading reflections, gardening feats, and other mish mash things. Hopefully you'll leave encouraged, pensive, or smiling at the simple things of life. Thank you for stopping by and hope you'll find some interesting posts to read!

  1. So many here that I’m not familiar with. Just a note: even when some app suggests a mushroom is edible, don’t try it unless a local expert confirms it. Fungi of all sorts are terrifically hard to identify: look, but don’t sauté is the best advice!

    1. Oh, don’t worry! I wouldn’t try a wild mushroom no matter what the app told me. It would be a frightful experience. lol. It must take a lot of studying and research to become a fungi expert, hopefully, they don’t have any bad experiences from it.
