Peace and quiet on the Yarrow dike

Yesterday, with friends who live beside it, I walked with friends along the Yarrow Dike.

This is a place we have often enjoyed, but new trails and footbridges have been added lately, making this quiet woodland path even more delightful.

We delighted in the flowers, blooming so early this year, and were able to grab some wild snacks along the way. Wild thimbleberries and salmonberries were ripe for the the picking.
Though it is not usually in flower until July or even August, fireweed was flowering along the railway tracks. A tame cosmos volunteer showed itself among the wildflowers, adding to the feeling of delightful surprise, while a fisherman tried his luck in the green and quiet Vedder River.
