Fancies Worth Passing Close By

They pass us by if we don't pass by them at the right time. The last few days have been a very fragrant time to pass by linden trees that line streets like Bayard Lane. or along the sidewalk leading to the public swimming pool. You can even find them on Linden Lane, a street that takes its name very seriously. Look up and you'll see the two-tone, grey on green effect of the leaves.

This beautiful shot of a Magnolia blossom being visited by a bee on the Princeton campus was sent to me by Karla, taken on her iPhone.
The native butterflyweed (Asclepias tuberosa) is always a treat to encounter. This one's at the corner of Linden and Hawthorn. We can hope that a monarch butterfly might one day pass by and lay some eggs on the underside of this milkweed's leaves.
