Still glowing from the beautiful weather and scenery and the many interesting plants from our excursion yesterday.
Smooth false foxglove, starry campion, and American dittany were just a few of the interesting things I saw, along with ferns and spleenworts, etc., and there were two plants, not blooming, that I couldn’t even identify. 😊
Spider web at the edge of the woods.
Saw this on our walk in Berks County today: American dittany, Cunila origanoides. It smells like thyme, or a little like oregano.
Faërie contains many things besides elves and fays, and besides dwarfs, witches, trolls, giants, or dragons; it holds the seas, the sun, the moon, the sky; and the earth, and all things that are in it: tree and bird, water and stone, wine and bread, and ourselves, mortal men, when we are enchanted.
And the cows on the hill and everything was like peace.
So, we went here today. And it was exactly like this. 💚
Amitabha, the Buddha of Limitless Light, meditates on the flowers caught in a moment of sunrise light.
Morning sunrise light on Japanese forest grass and Hosta ‘Blue Cadet’.
Japanese forest grass is a great one to have if you have a cat or dog. They love it and it helps their digestion. My cat found it in the garden when he was a kitten and now asks for some every day.
I’m really enjoying these pink salvias this year.
Hoya—coming back into bloom!
