Last month I was out hiking in the back yard and was lucky enough to catch the salmon berries in bloom. When I was out there looking at them last year I had thought they were some sort of wild old-fashioned rose, since they are so pretty; however, this time around I was looking at their foliage closer and realized it looked more raspberry-like. that’s when it dawned on me that these were probably salmon berries which we have growing in and around the yard. after sleuthing around a bit on the internet, I was able to confirm I was right about their identification. Now if I can just manage to get back there to beat the birds and the squirrels to their delicate delectable juicy goodness…

Every spring I look forward to the old fashioned white bleeding hearts coming into bloom in the front yard, as well as traditional red ones , and a pink native variety in the backyard. Originally I just had these pink one’s which I got at an earth day fair back when I lived out in Gresham. It was one of many native species of plants being given away that day to encourage people to grow more native species in their yards. At first mine did not do well because I had them in a shallow planter bowl. Then I realized that bleeding hearts actually have long tap roots, so I transplanted them out back, near a path we are building down into the forest,  into a bottomless planter  made from an old tire I hauled out of our woods which looked a bit like a big flower to me because of the zig zag edge that was already cut into it when I found it. Since then they have really filled out and started blooming more prolifically. For weeks now my trigger finger has been itching as I have been keeping a close eye on my bleeding hearts and on the sunlight out the kitchen window for the perfect photo opportunity. A few weeks ago I managed to get out with my camera for a few minutes on two separate occasions when there was a break in the rain and the sun peeked out brilliantly between the clouds.
