It is really beautiful here right now and I’ve been taking some pictures of flowers and plants around the place again. I notice that most of them are blue/purple. I think these flowers look more blue in real life. I don’t know what they are, but they’re all over the place around here.
We didn’t get a lot of black walnuts this year but I got enough to stain all my wooden display boxes at least.
I really like the sedges. They are aesthetically pleasing to me, especially this big variety which I like to use inside the house instead of ‘flowers’. They have the typical ‘sedges have edges’ triangular shape to the stem, and I can really see how people got the idea to make paper from papyrus whenever I handle them. This is a shot of the top of the plant.
I think this frog was only about a 1/2 inch long. I was trying to get some good closeups of some ironweed flowers, Paz (kitty) was trying to get my attention and I heard a strange chirp. Needless to say I wondered how the cat made that noise until I saw the tiny frog jump onto this leaf.
I brought home some yellowroot plants.
