Yellow Team

Patrick stayed with us this past week.  
He has been playing Pokemon Go since it came out last month.  
I love the fact that it inspires him to go places and walk.  
We've been to several parks, the Zoo, the Botanical Garden and the Art Museum. 

Yesterday morning Patrick slept in a bit, while I went monitoring.  
We looked for Purple Fringed Orchid in places it had not been seen for a while.
Jerry worked for many years at Oak Openings and knew exactly where most of the sites were.
There was one site he was not familiar with, however.

We walked quite a way along a deep ravine, wondering if we would find the right spot.  We knew we had when we came across E.D.  He is a local orchid expert.  
Unfortunately, he confirmed there were no orchids except at the locations we found them in last week.

We did find many yellow things, however.
A yellow spider near the creek

A yellow mushroom

A yellow Tiger Swallowtail butterfly

Patrick and I went to Grumpy's for lunch.  
He helped me download the Pokemon Go app and sign up for ...
the yellow team - his team and a fitting one given all the yellow I had encountered.

We had a nice time walking around the ball park and the convention center and a few of the parks downtown.  
We ended the afternoon cooling off in the air conditioning of the library - sitting just outside the McMaster Auditorium.

  1. I have to get over here more often :) Everything going on from plants, bugs to fungi and Pokemon! Love that last picture. Someday you'll have to show me how you did that. AND you've got a really cool avatar.
