Port Townsend and Chicory

Despite our seeing few birds or dragonflies, we enjoyed our four day sojourn at Port Townsend. We had a good time with our friends, ate at fancy restaurants, took long walks, and toured the Victorian architecture and art galleries in the town. The weather was perfect and the views, like of Mount Baker, were spectacular.
Also entertaining were a plethora of feral wildflowers. Chicory is a common, invasive weed across most of North America. The pant was introduced from Europe with hopes of using the roots as a coffee substitute. Erika and I have a fond spot in our hearts for Chicory. The fields when we married in Ohio were full of chicory. We took this photo in Port Townsend on 23 June 2021.
