Day 2 without camera: Flora Gallery

on July 7, 2012

On this record breaking heat index day when I most likely wouldn’t have been taking many pictures anyhow, I’m making a new chapter in my nature gallery: flora. I have a huge and beautiful colony of datura.  I’m not sure if they’re metel or wrightii, but an interesting link to datura lore is here:  They’re also very attractive to tobacco hornworms, who prefer plants from the solanaceae family such as the featured datura.  Yes, I’m the bug whisperer and can trick train your household bugs:)  This is also another picturesque example of pollinators at work-maybe it’s their first date;) I have a fondness for rose campion too and envy the insects that have this for their daily vista in May.  The hops picture was taken in April before it morphed into what we affectionately call Seymour.  By this time of the year, barring bad weather or violent storms, the vines are up and over the canopy of the deck and have started to set beautiful golden cones.  Of course I’m foreshadowing here providing fodder for future posts once my new camera arrives.
