This looked like a weed/fern. It was light green and the leaves were pretty firm. (This picture is really close up. The entire bush was about the size of a basketball).
Common goose seen all over Seattle.
Blackberry bush. Not flowering or fruiting.
This is a pretty bad picture but this tree is about 20-30 feet tall and has branches than sort of fall downwards but don't really hit the ground. The branches are thin and have a lot of notches on them. Some of them even resemble bamboo shoots. The leaves are small and light/lime green.
Tree with purple bulbs that looked like berries. They were just about to start blooming and the branches were covered in what looked like gold crust lichen. The trunk howerver, was covered in a different more flaky type of lichen.
Another tree with lots of thin branches. This tree was full of leaves and also just about to start blooming light pink/white flowers.
Saw these two ducks swimming together in the Puget Sound.
Really tall tree/bush? Maybe 30 feet tall. Green leaves with white and yellow stalky things that look fuzzy from far away.
Flowering bluebell amongst grass.
Tiny bug that was around the tiny crab (from the last post). Looked sort of like a potato bug but a bit different.
Fuzzy bumblebee flying around low to the ground. Black wings, fuzzy yellow and black coat, long bent black legs.
Big flowering camellia. White flowers with clear stamen and yellow pollen at the ends.
I've seen these things a lot but never really knew what they were. Here's a picture of one under water and then a bunch dried up on the beach.
This is another small bush. I've seen this every spring/summer. Later it has very pretty magenta flowers on tall stalks. The leaves are very fuzzy.
Roses were not in bloom. Green leaves with dark red edges bleeding into the green of the leaves. Not sure what type of rose bush this is though.
Also commonly seen all over the city.
Tiny crabs that are always under big rocks on the beach.
Common purpleish-blue flower seen around edges of grass. This particular cluster of muscari had some dead flowers but was just a small secluded cluster in this patch of grass.
Saw a lot of this grass (possibly planted) around my neighborhood.
Tree right on the waterfront. Sort of coming out of the side of the land and looked like it was falling toward the water. The tiny cones made me think it was a red alder.
