This Gunnera grows by the side of a roadside ditch, it seems hardy and healthy in our climate. It has not attained full growth but it is certainly quite a large plant.

I saw Athyrium filix-femina ssp. cyclosorum (lady fern), seen in the center of this photo, growing with Polystichum munitum (western sword fern) and next to a roadside ditch, while out on a walk today. The horsetail is Equisetum telmateia ssp. braunii

With help from erwin_pteridophilos on iNaturalist, the Athyrium filix-femina ssp. cyclosorum is seen in the Pacific Northwest, there is a detailed description at eflora www.efloras.org/florataxon.aspx?flora_id=1&taxon_id=2...

Lysichiton americanus (western skunk cabbage) emerging. It was interesting to see this plant flowering, as most of these plants flowered three to five weeks ago. Late bloomers are a necessary part of plant diversity, in case the early bloomers were lost, perhaps due to weather changes.

I think this is Cepaea nemoralis (Grove snail) seen while on a walk in Lake Forest Park, Washington, USA

These are a form of banded snail, originally from Europe. They can have quite a verity of banding patterns.

This tree is well outside it's natural range (California coast) but it seems to be doing well.

Anna's hummingbird (Calypte anna) perched on the top of our fig tree in our back garden. We have hummers all summer, they are attracted to many of the plants in or garden and seem quite adapted to people. We often see them as we have dinner on our back deck. It was fun to capture this one still, I caught it from on of our windows. The fig tree tip is about 6 meters above ground level.
