Last weekend I was down in Utica, Illinois to enjoy the Illinois Wine Fest.
Asclepias tuberosa ~ Milkweed
Everyone is enjoying the milkweed!
Beautiful natural art. I bet if spiders became aware, they would become great mathematicians. How do they measure that perfectly?
Asclepias syriaca ~ Common milkweed
I’m not sure of this grass, however the seedhead was pretty cool.
Wish I had more time to key this out… Sigh.
Monarch on the Joe Pye. I took so many photos of this guy enjoying this bloom, there’s no surprise more photos are turning up!!
Hypericum perforatum, ~ Perforate St John’s-wort, Common Saint John’s wort or St John’s wort
