Summer Blooming Flowers 7-22-2015

Happy Hump Day!!
I hope everyone’s week is going well. We’re going camping this weekend.. about 13 miles away from home and only 1 mile from work. Is this a ‘stay-cation’? We haven’t hiked at the area et, however there is supposed to be OSPREY nesting here!! If you are wondering what these majestic birds look like, check out Emily’s blog at Bella Remy Photography for some wonderful photos of them!!

Sagittaria latifolia is a plant found in shallow wetlands and is sometimes known as broadleaf arrowhead, duck-potato, Indian potato, or wapato. They are edible, and may be boiled or baked and eaten as a potato-like food. Native Americans harvested and consumed these tubers, which in some areas were known as wapato. The tubers are also an important food source for waterfowl, hence the name duck potato.

  1. I’m wishing I could get my hydrangeas to look like that (Endless Summer). The buds on the old wood are dead each spring. I’m thinking they are killed by the cold winter.
    I’m going to try packing them this fall and seeing if I have more success next year.

    I too love the white hydrangeas with the red beebalm. Was that combination just a happy accident?
