Butterfly sighting

Jun 29 2014

Fern Springs

Location: Perry Creek & Haugstad Rds
Jackson County

10:30 - 12:30, overcast, 75.
I ventured down to the end of Haugstad Rd for the first time and wow what a find! Lots of butterflies and a field of roses that smelled divine. Also lots of milkweed, yarrow, and spiderwort. I also crossed paths with a frog and a black and yellow snake (western fox?) about 5 feet from each other on Perry Creek Rd. Wonder if they met up for lunch later? I ate the puffball for dinner.
