Flowers are Always Good

  Vendor event all day, and I did really well. That means really busy. No time to take any pictures, so enjoy some more flowers from a couple of days ago. First up is Dame's rocket, Hesperis matrionalis, alien, invasive, but so pretty. Lot's of people think it's phlox, but this only has 4 petals, and phlox has 5. dame's rocket

Here we go with something of much higher quality. This is false Solomon's seal, Smilacina racemosa. This is native. The leaves look the same as Solomon's seal, but the flowers extend from the tip in a raceme rather than hanging beneath the leaves. false Solomon's seal

This one is also native, but much more common. It's one of the wild morning glories. This one is hedge bindweed, Convolvulus sepium. I didn't get a good picture of the leaves, which is really important for ID. This one was close to home. Maybe I can get back there again while it's blooming. hedge bindweed

There is no other news, but I'm not done for the day. There's another event tomorrow and I have to refill book boxes, and count the money, and print more flyers. Tired, but a good day.

See Mower and More

Ann- it sure is! 2020 was a pretty dry year.
