July Flowers


Purple coneflowers greet passing traffic on Harrison Street.

Backyard buttonbush thriving in the runoff from the neighbors' yards.


Some leaves on the buttonbush were fashioned into a webby tent for a clutch of baby spiders--by the spider, not by me.

Culvers root just beginning to open its long lines of flowers.

Towered over by a pokeweed (Phytolacca americana), which looks like it has aspirations to rival its tree-like relative in the pampas of South America called the Ombu (Phytolacca dioica). Flowers tba.

Clouds of tall meadow rue attract tiny bees.

A good year for elderberry, and just about everything else.
