Found in our kitchen.
Been seeing other Hypericum species in the hills; thought to throw in this ubiquitous landscaping favorite. Don't know what it's potential to be invasive; but we are certainly giving it every chance in using it to cover dry slopes everywhere.
Love to see these flowers...
Thought I'd add to my nightshade collection.
Quite a few of these distinctive webs right now. Sadly unable to get good shots of the architects.
It seems to me that so few of these flower; the buds either withering or perhaps eaten off...
if true, it's a wonder how this plant is so abundant.
Location approximate; but easy to find just on the north side of the trail, about 1/3 0f the way up creek trail to the pond...
Flowers well past their prime. By color: Red Flowering Gooseberry?
How does this undistinguished herb get to be the 'american trail plant'?Did we get to vote on it?
And how 'bicolor'?
The other day i posted an image that wasn't easily ID'd. Here i make amends with a better visualization of the skipper dujour up here.
