We were going to meet up with a friend of ours in Door County.  We were about two hours ahead of him because he was held up at work.  My husband decided we should stop off at Robert La Salle County Park Door County and I could search for July Wisconsin Wildflowers along the shoreline.

Stairway to Beach

Along the Lake Michigan shoreline, it was much cooler.  It was a welcomed 15 degree cooler than at home in Green Bay. You could not beat the view either, The perfect place for me to spend a few hours.

 

We walked the rocky shoreline together for an hour. Fresh air, a wonderful breeze and plenty of items for me to point the camera at.

My husband decided that a shady spot on a park bench, under a tree was the perfect place for him to take a nap. I continued on along the shore.

Daisies Along the Lakeshore

Wild Daisies

Some of the daisies in the shaded portion of the shoreline were just starting to bloom.

On the rocky edge of the Robert La Salle County Park Door County shoreline where there was direct sun, the daisies were in full bloom and being enjoyed by beetles and moths.

Crown Vetch 

Pink Crown Vetch - Invasive species. Many believe it to be a wildflower. It is really an invasive species.
One of my favorite finds of the day was the Crown Vetch. This is NOT a Wisconsin wildflower or native to Wisconsin, but instead is a flower listed on the invasive list.

But, I thought it was at a wildflower at one time, sorry if I messed you up in a prior posting. I even looked to add it to the collection for that reason.

The flower goes by the names: Vetch: Crown Vetch, Purple Crown Vetch, Axseed, Hive Vine.

The crown vetch flower has pea-like flowers and is considered to be an invasive plant.  It was planted to help with the erosion of the shoreline.  However, it quickly takes over the area it grows in and is marked as invasive for the state of Wisconsin.

How could something so beautiful quickly take over…. 🙁

 

Passing our time at Robert La Salle County Park Door County was an excellent idea.  I used the time to center myself with nature and my husband got some much-needed shut-eye.

Now, we are all set to visit with our friend for the night.  Worked out perfectly for us.
