Today was the first day of class at the middle school where I have been helping out with the Tlingit language class the past couple of years. It added to an already full Thursday. After class I did take some time to walk over to the Path of Hope and see if any birds were around. It was fairly quiet bird-wise. Today’s photos are of plants I’ve been meaning to document for some time. These included broad-leaf dock (Rumex obtusifolius) from disturbed areas around the new ball field at Moller Park, and a yellow pond-lily (Nuphar polysepala) rhizome from the dredging work at Swan Lake.
