Just some quickies today – the camera was feeling artsy.
Siberian Iris – more than a week ahead of where it was last year.
These only emerged today, I think (yesterday was rainy) but they’re already a bit nibbled looking.
and again. remind me to show you the leaves of this plant – they’re pretty cool.
found a bug on a milkweed shoot. the heroes at bugguide peg this for Swamp Milkweed Leaf Beetle (Labidomera clivicollis)
The false solomon’s seal flowers were looking particularly fetching.
I watched this guy make his way up to and through this fan of stamens.
