Amazing Plants

It is gorgeous here today...finally! After 4 days of rain we woke up this morning to sunshine. Sam slept until 9:00 am again today. We sure do hope it lasts. After breakfast we went to the Nature Center and walked around looking at the animals. We saw wolves, foxes, sea otters, a cougar and Sam got to pet a goat. We went on one of the nature trails and I saw these amazing plants that look like tiny umbrellas. I took a ton of pics. I fell in love with them. If anyone knows what they are please let me know. I'd love to plant them in our garden...once we actually have a garden.

I finished a new painting yesterday. I'll post it tomorrow.

Hope you're having a lovely weekend.

They are amazing! Was about to ask you what they are called- I hope you find out.
They would work perfectly in one of your paintings wouldn't they- with your little characters sheltering under them? :)

You took some good photos of them too.
