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 on Lamium galeobdolon ‘Hermann’s Pride’
Solanum family ~ nightshade – won’t kill you, but will hurt coming out.
Rosa ~ Iceberg
Prunus serotina ~ Black cherry – This is not the yummy fruit variety, just the ‘stain your feet dark purple’ variety =-(
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
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 =-)
Hydrophyllum virginianum ~ Virginia Waterleaf
