Eh, not so much. I’ve got a “Case of the Monday’s”… or in this instance, an “Attack of the Tuesdays”!
The only good thing about a long weekend with a Monday holiday is that there is only four more days to the week =-) I’ll try to focus on that.
We did have a wonderfully long weekend in Sooooouthern Illinois (Kentucky was only over the river) and got to see so many cool things not normally seen up here. For you friends that are not on this island, Illinois is a long state, 8 hours from top to bottom. That’s 2 growing zones, swoon! I will post about it soon.
I am a bit behind on the ‘Blooming’ posts. These were all shot at least a week ago. Just for clarity. Enjoy!
Cornus sericea ~ Red dogwood berries
Asclepias ~ Milkweed seed pod
Euphorbia corollata – Flowering spurge
I’ve got nothing. A weed?
Solidago rigida ~ Stiff goldenrod
Silphium laciniatum ~ compass plant
Liatris aspera ~ Rough blazing star
I really like the leaves on these… awe, snap. Brain cloud! Anyone?
Eryngium yuccifolium~ Rattlesnake master
Solidago nemoralis ~ Grey Goldenrod
