On the Path -- June 29th, 2011

Another day of happy little surprises. As earlier flowers fade, new ones open. Particularly this year I'm noticing the progression of the flowers and other plants and this blog helps me to record it. Nature truly is something to behold. The older I get the more I appreciate it. The variety and the complexity of nature really is overwhelming.

With the trees now in full bloom, the path is overgrown in parts-- kind of a cozy feel to it.

The Poison Ivy is getting lost amongst all the other growth which makes it even more likely that someone will unknowingly wander into it.

The second Day Lily is open in the meadow.

There's more Chicory in the meadow this year than I've ever seen. It's a gorgeous shade of blue.

Field Bindweed... Thanks John.

Rough-Fruited Cinquefoil with some Bedstraw behind it. Bedstraw reminds me of Baby's Breath in our bouquets. Nature's bouquets are every bit as beautiful as ours.

Bird's Foot Trefoil  with Bedstraw...

Goatsbeard seed head with Bedstraw... :-)

A Daisy bouquet...

Queen Anne's Lace is starting to open. The various stages are fascinating. If you look carefully you can see the single purple floret in the center. It'll be much more obvious soon.

It looks like a tall Dandelion-- apparently it's Red-Seeded Dandelion... Thanks John.

More and more of the Milkweed is opening. The blooms look like popcorn balls at this stage.

What will tomorrow bring?
