Happy Wednesday to you all!
In 7 days, we will be off to Southern Wisconsin to camp on the Sugar River. I’m really hoping that Mother Nature cooperates and either holds back her rain or maybe only rain at night.
Solanum dulcamara ~ bittersweet, bittersweet nightshade, bitter nightshade, blue bindweed, Amara Dulcis, climbing nightshade, fellenwort, felonwood, poisonberry, poisonflower, scarlet berry, snakeberry, trailing bittersweet, trailing nightshade, violet bloom, or woody nightshade.
Lots of common names for this one, however no need to form a relationship with this dangerous fellow. These are noxious weeds here in the Midwest.
Stylophorum diphyllum ~ celandine-poppy, wood poppy, poppywort
These are the seedheads… How cute are these?!?!
Iris + Iris = Awesome!

This photo doesn’t do it justice with the brightness of the red-orange.
Thymus praecox ‘Highland cream’ ~ Ornamental Thyme

Philadelphus (Mock Orange) x. ‘Buckley’s Quill’ ~ Buckley’s Quill Mockorange
I have been long awaiting (2 years!) the availability of this plant in a nursery near me. Finally, I got my hands on 5 for my front garden. These are right in my front yard and are under my livingroom windows where the wind tends to blow. Many gardeners consider this plant ‘messy & one-seasoned’, however I find it beautiful and worthy of the front yard. =-)
So beautiful and smell so sweet!
