aka The Bloom Report.
This will be a journal of what's happening in the backyard, the neighbourhood, the countryside, and the natural forest.

When we were kids growing up on the farm, there was a war on Toadflax. Our dad would tell us to go out in the fields and find it and dig it out. We have been discussing this, and all agree that none of us could actually identify Toadflax. I was in the Okanagan last week, driving around photographing flowers along the way, and came across a poster of the "Dirty Dozen" list of weeds. Toadflax was on the list, and I had taken pictures of it! I wonder if this is the same plant my dad wanted us to look for on the farm.
Some of the other flowers in bloom there might interest you. I will identify the ones I can.
