Winter Weeds and Seeds

We have had our eye out for Winter Weeds and Seeds thanks to the challenge at Outdoor Hour Challenge – Winter Weed Nature Study. Armed with a new camera, we headed to the beach for a bit.

I noticed this seaweed. The tips are turning white.

The new growth? is white. I am still trying to look it up. Spring (in the PNW comes early) is a perfect time to see the beautiful colors of the plants in the tide pool rocks.

Monday, I got to take a mini field trip to the south side of the lake. They have a floating dock/deck for folks to walk on the wetlands.

I found some beautiful seeds.

And Moss.

This is the bush pulled back.

I have no idea what these are, but they caught my attention. Now I have 3 new plants to draw in the journal and look up in my field guides! We’ve been outside for the last few days due to the warm weather here on the Oregon Coast. I’m excited to capture these and have a treasure hunt waiting to find out!

    I’m really enjoying your blog. I love how steeped in nature everything is!

    • Glad to have you! We’re almost headed into surf season again, so I appologize in advance for shifting to a Surf Blog. It’s also review season, so I’ll be sharing new products. My favorite is the Nature Studies. We’re trying to make it a priority on Fridays and sharing with you! Thanks for the kind words!

    Love seeing a different area as we have been covered in snow for several months (or so it seems!). 🙂 Thanks for sharing your explorations!

  3. What a lovely walk you had this month looking for winter weeds! I love your close-ups especially. Thanks for submitting to the OHC carnival.

    • I pulled out my plant books and found that one of the little star looking plants is a Moss. Weird. I see to names of “could also be” in the book and will look them up after my morning priorities. I could get lost for hours looking these up. Still trying to find the seaweed, and find out why the tips are white. Now I see I ‘need’ a better sea plant book. 😉
