|Most of the days have been chilly with rain or drizzle. That doesn't stop water fights, with buckets of water that are tossed at campers and counselors. This week has felt like a Texas heat wave. The afternoon temp. has reached 70.|
Over the week end, with no campers in session and our shopping completed, Lynne, Monique and I gathered our buckets and knives to collect the magenta flowers of the fireweed. Returning to camp, we stripped the blossoms from the stems, cleaned them and froze the blossoms in four cup measures. To our amazement, we had enough for 13 batches of fireweed jelly.
