All of these were taken from my Memorial Day Weekend trip to Jim Edgar Panther Creek State Fish and Wildlife Area. This beautiful area is totally man-made! They started construction (or is it de-struction??) on the area in 2002. The creek was flooded, trees and other wildlife came and now we have a party!
Blooming water plant
Carduus nutans ~ musk thistle, nodding thistle or nodding plumeless thistle || Rainbow!!
I’m kinda guessing here… Rubus pubescens ~ Dwarf Raspberry
Eryngium yuccifolium ~ Rattlesnake-master
Not blooming but interesting foliage. Latin is a wonderful language that I love. Yuccifolium translated to Leaves like a Yucca. So straightforward. We all should have just stuck with one language. Things would have been a lot easier had we.
Rosa multiflora ~ Wild rose
Iris pseudacorus ~ Yellow flag iris
Rosa multiflora ~ Wild rose || Blooming Toxicodendron radicans ~ Poison ivy
Tradescantia virginiana ~ Spiderwort || Melilotus officinalis ~ yellow sweet clover, yellow melilot, ribbed melilot or common melilot
Vicia cracca ~ Tufted Vetch
