Happy Tuesday. The only bonus to this week is that it is one day shorter. To make up or getting paid for yesterday, we won’t make any overtime this week. so sad. Welp. It is what it is.

Xylocopa virginica or Eastern carpenter bee onΒ Lamium galeobdolon ‘Hermann’s Pride’

Solanum family ~ nightshade – won’t kill you, but will hurt coming out.

Rosa ~ Iceberg

image

Prunus serotina ~ Black cherry – This is not the yummy fruit variety, just the ‘stain your feet dark purple’ variety =-(

image

Viburnum trilobum OR Viburnum opulus OR Viburnum opulus var. americanum ~ I think all of these are correct for now. Or you can call it American cranberry bush. We are on the southern-most tip of their native region.

Geranium maculatum ~ wood, wild or spotted geranium

image

Just love those trillium! Trillium sessile ~ Toadshade or Sessile-flowered wake-robin

Both are woodland phlox, however one received more sun than the other.

Rubus subgenus idaeobatus ~ Yummy Raspberries! I’ll be back to pick you later =-)

  1. Love those Trillium. Are you aware that the Trillium is Ontario’s “adopted plant” and is incorporated into the Provinces emblem? It is therefore a protected species which makes it an offense to dig them up from their natural habitat. Ref. Bill 184, Ontario Trillium Protection Act, 2009. πŸ™‚

    • This one doesn’t like hot and stays north of the Mason-Dixon line (above Alabama). However, there are other varieties that are a bit more flamboyant that do enjoy the heat.
      Thanks for stopping by! πŸ˜€

  2. I love Trillium but don’t think they grow here. I am sure we have Viburnum. I am surprised how much overlap there is between our respective geographies. I am learning a lot!
