10.17.2022 A blast from the not too distant past

On one of my trips to East Leverett Meadow, the same day as the recent tendril and drop post, I happened across this pretty bindweed flower below some popped milkweed pods (my original photographic quarry).  I posted a similar flower … Continue reading

10.10.2022 American Burnweed

I posted a bud with bee a little while back but this showcases a bud with bloom.  That’s a lot of seeds and might explain why this qualifies for “weedship” as it has spread all over the side yard where … Continue reading

09.12.2022 Milkweed Mania Macro Monday

Visited East Leverett Meadow (interesting that they require you to lease a dog when visiting 🙂 ) this morning shortly after our rain let up with raindrops in mind. The floss tends to stick together when wet but there were … Continue reading

08.23.2022 Two-fer Tuesday

I hadn’t planned on doing a two-fer post but decided to share a wildflower.  I have been stressing insects rather than flowers this summer so thought I should post one.  Maybe more to come. These aptly named Meadow Beauties are … Continue reading

06.23.2022 Daisy Fleabane

This has been a great year for Daisy or Annual Fleabane-Erigeron annuus and especially here in the yard.  Everywhere locally really.  It attracts a fair number of insects besides those wonderful hover flies. We had rain most of the day … Continue reading

06.19.2022 As with the PT’s so with the GP’s

06.10.2022 Forb Friday
