A walk through Hamlin Park with Hitomi Dames

Monday, August 3, 2020

Take a walk through beautiful Hamlin Park with photographer Hitomi Dames.

The trees have not been disturbed for many decades but the park is maintained.

Nature's sculpture

Hitomi would be very happy if someone would tell her what these flowers are.

Lovely colors. It's probably a weed.

The parks department maintains the trails. The park is extremely popular with walkers.

Hamlin Park is located along 15th Ave NE, between NE 160 and 165th.

They're called fireweed. And they bloom from the bottom up. When the blooms get to the top summer is supposed to be over... (I have no idea if that's factual. It's just what I've heard)

Jupiter’s beard? Or rocket something? Not very helpful, but lovely photos.

My Mother in Law, who farmed with her Husband in Montana in 1915, told me that this "Weed" is called "Fire-weed" also called "Prairie Fire". She said it helps the bees to make the BEST honey!

It's Purple Spurge. It's classified as a noxious weed in Washington State.
