This tulip was growing at the edge of a yard outside a medical office on the corner of 2nd and Marion St. I like tulips, and it’s only partly because they’re one of the few flowers I can identify without assistance.
This here is Oregon’s state flower, the Oregon Grape, if I’ve identified it correctly. You might notice the distinct lack of grapes, but the plant does grow berries, so maybe that counts. Here’s some info about the flower, if you’re into that sort of thing.
I found this growing at the edge of Neitling Park. I have some Oregon Grape plants in my yard, too, but I rarely think to take pictures in my own yard. I don’t know why.
It made me rather happy to see all these lovely tulips in bloom a few days ago along 2nd Ave. I took a photo of them last year, too, when the flowers were a bit further along.
