An August day at KPR

August 28, 2014

This has been a lovely August at Kilchis Point Reserve. The Douglas spirea (Spirea douglasii) are still blooming mid-month! This type of shrub is a native Oregon plant and is also known as “hardhack.” Coastal Native Americans used hardhack to make broom-like implements.

Douglas spirea - aka "hardhack" continues to bloom against a late August sky.

  1. Howdy! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering if
    you knew where I could find a captcha plugin for my comment form?
    I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having problems finding
    one? Thanks a lot!
