This bird's-foot trefoil was growing along the edge of the path that takes you out of the UBNA. It was in full bloom with brilliant yellow flowers in a unique crown-like design.
There was a growth of bittersweet nightshade growing along the bank of the pond. It was in full flower, and the stems were a dark brown/purple.
These dandelion-like plants were growing sparingly throughout the UBNA. Their stems were taller, more wirey, and more firm than that of a dandelion.
There were quite a few of these wild rose plants growing near the train towards the beginning of the UBNA. They were mostly all flowering pink blooms, and some plants reached above five feet tall.
There were several purple/blue lupines growing near the beginning of the Union Bay Natural Area. The weather was quite windy, and cloudy with occasional sun. The lupines looked like they were just beginning to bloom, since the flowers had not yet reached the top.
I am not sure if these are forget me nots but the flowers resemble forget-me-nots greatly even though they seem much smaller than usual.
There were a few taller red clover growing amongst the white clover. Their stems were longer and the leaves spread farther apart on the stem. The blooms were also larger and the petals more abundant than the white clover.
There was a large patch of white clover growing in the grassy field. White clover loves to grow in disturbed areas, so the Union Bay Natural Area is perfect for it. There were lots of honey bees buzzing around the blooms gather nectar.
Towards the back part of the UBNA in the more woodsy section, there was a large abundance of blooming buttercups lining the trail and going back until they met the forest. They were growing thickly and about as tall as my knee.
There were many of these small yellow flowers growing in patches amongst the clover in the open field near the entrance of the UBNA.
I looked it up and apparently hybrid bluebells can be both blue and white.
Really cool green flowers with only two petals. They looked like they were sitting on lily pads. They were probably planted since they were right next to planted bluebells infront of the building.
Really deep purple flower among really big but also regular size grass.
Planted along side the Music Library building by the stairs. I'm pretty sure this is a hybrid bluebell. It was between hybrid and spanish, but the hybrid bluebell's stamen looks more like the one I saw.
Seem many times around campus.
Purple flowers that looked like rhododendron flowers. They must've been in the latter part of their flowering season as many of them were already dead and shriveled.
Bush with very interesting "flowers." Not really sure what you would call those but I guess they do have petals and stamen.
Planted blue flowering bush. Dark and light green leaves were firm. Almost all the flowers were in bloom and there were also some red berry-like things among the leaves.
Very yellow cupped flowers in a bush of prickly and shiny green leaves.
Tiny clusters of white flowers with yellow centers. It looks like it could be achillea but I'm not sure.
Tons of white budding flowers in this bush. They must just be in the beginning of their flowering season. Interestingly, the leaves of these buds looked very furry for flower leaves.
Saw these tiny yellow flowers coming out of a green and reddish bush that resembled salal. These could've been coming from a plant that was hidden by the green/red bush though.
Tiny cupped white flowers in a bush of long dark green leaves. Possibly towards the end of its flowering season since many of these white flowers were dead or dying.
Really vibrant pink bleeding heart. I couldn't tell if this was planted or not because there was only one bleeding heart plant among other plants that didn't seem to be planted there either. Also, I was unsure since it is native to the pacific NW.
Small white flowers with pink/purple veins. They were placed sporadically throughout this clover bush.
Tall green stalk with one long tipped leaf. Yellow petals, 3 long outer petals with brown markings. 6 smaller inner petals with no markings. Growing next to a marsh with a variety of grasses an shrubs. Most of the other flowers of its kind have not bloomed yet.
Flowering tree. Most of the flowers were lighter pink but this one was the darkest and prettiest. A lot of the flowers were actually dying or falling off so maybe this tree was getting towards the end of its flowering season (if it has a season).
