Sunday sunshine

Grindelia (Grindelia stricta), or coastal gumweed, is one of our late-blooming wildflowers. Small shrubs are cheering up trailsides near the marshy areas of Dungeness Recreation Area and can brighten the gloomiest day.

There are bracts on the bushes that are covered with a milky resin that is reputed to have healing properties.
