Summer Blooming Flowers 8-11-2013

The season is starting to slowly wind-down. There aren’t as many flowers to capture so I think I’m going to start including seed heads and interesting fall colors.
The temperatures are predicted to be 77F – 58F for the next 2 weeks. For me, this is PARADISE, aside from the mosquitos, but they won’t be as productive in the cooler weather and should be dying off a bit. Fingers crossed.
I do enjoy the fall. The last hurrah of the seasons. Every nice day may be the last of the season, so I seem to get outside more often, also camp more often as there is less upkeep to the yard.


Silphium perfoliatum – Cupplant


Ailanthus Webworm Moth on my Echinacea.


Pollinator on my Echinacea!


Rudbeckia ‘Goldsturm’ – Black eyed Susan’s


Cichorium intybus – Chicory
The roots can be roasted as a coffee additive or substitute.


Not sure, but it most likely is a weed!


Weed? It was growing in the middle of a lawn, obviously not planted on purpose!


Cucurbita maxima – Pumpkin!

Thanks for visiting & keep on planting!

    • I was doing some thinking about tagging plants as weeds and thought that plants can be both weeds and wanted ornamental plants at the same time. Since I am writing about ‘the Midwest’, I’m inclined to classify something as a weed that, for us, is commonly known as a weed. Sometimes, when I can’t identify the plant or it’s clearly someplace it doesn’t belong, I’ll call it a weed to help my readers HELP ME identify it. So, this white flower may very well be a well sought-after wildflower in your country, but here it just gets dosed with herbicide =-(
