Weekly Walk July 29 2009
My corner of the Earth is so lush right now! It seems things are coming faster than I can photograph and/or eat them!
There are wild flowers as well as things I have planted.
lots of wild Asters
This below is Engleman’s Ivy, and grows everywhere around here. I think it is spectacular! Its form is lovely during spring and summer and fall, in summer it gets clouds of blooms and then in fall turns a stunning red.
Black Raspberries are spreading, sown by the birds every year as they sit on fences.
These grow all over in the grass, hugging the ground and avoiding the mower. I love to see a subtle carpet of them on the lawn.
Don't know what these are, but they are sure weird and wonderful!
These fill the creek during summer, and don't always bloom. This year we are in luck, although they seem to be blooming at different times rather than en masse as before.
