In yesterday's post I showed this flower that I couldn't identify
And my readers quickly identified it as Goat's Beard
When we first moved to Washington in 2001 we saw this lovely plant flowering - and someone told us that it was called Goat's Beard
I can certainly see the resemblance to a goat's beard
With some research I think I've been able to identify it as a plant called Ocean Spray
A much prettier name than Goat's Beard - so is this a correct identification? Is it only called Goat's Beard by residents of Bellingham?
The blossoms are simply beautiful
It grows in masses alongside the street leading to our house - beautiful for sure - hayfever? Oh yes!!
