Just for fun, I took a walk around the property with the camera. Here's a sampling of the pics -
Wild grass growing in the front woods
Rasberries loaded and ripening
Virginia creeper climbing old pine
Mulberries going to waste - way too high to pluck. And who's gonna climb a ladder on a hill?
Sun dappled white pine branches
White pines & Aspens
Mint or Sage type plants....
I know I planted these, but couldn't guess what they are.... :O
In the lily family?
Lilies. Perfect, aren't they. :)
Weeds which I permitted to flourish along the sides - naturalized garden, ok? The bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds will visit them just the same.
I think there is a bee visiting these weeds, actually...
Another Lily - these are tall dramatic looking lilies. I cut a bunch and have in the kitchen.
Sun hitting on tree roots, where critters live...
More cast aside roots.
Poison Ivy. Which I'm not allergic to.
More Dianthus - Purple/whites called 'sweet william'.
Lovely yellow flowers I can't remember name of. They flower all summer. Coreopsis?
Rose - forgot the name. Very fragrant climber
Under the green curtain...
Up to back of house...
Dog - who NEEDS a bath. Rolled in deer poop.... :[
Burdocks - giant thistle
Funny story. The guy who invented velcro got his inspiration from burrs caught in dog's coat.
Burdocks / giant thistle
Coleus (sp?) Or 'painted leaves'
Pansies & painted leaves
Cool leaf pattern
More of those leaves
Virginia Creeper on white pine
2 year old aspen
Back woods - where the sunlight never hits the ground
