Harvest Bell About to Bloom

public.jpeg

I believe this is a Harvest Bell (Gentiana saponaria). I picked up some facts from the PlantSnap Plant Identification app by PlantSnap, Inc.. I have used this app a few times, and it does a good job of identifying plants. I love the colors of this late blooming flower.

“Berula is a cosmopolitan genus of flowering plant in the carrot family, whose species are known as water parsnip, as are some other plants in Apiaceae such as Sium latifolium and Sium suave. It is easily confused with the highly toxic water hemlock. Water parsnip is a widespread aquatic plant found across Eurasia, Africa, North America, and elsewhere. It is a perennial plant forming stolons at the base where it roots in mud, often underwater. It extends hollow stems and umbels of white flowers. The leaves are fernlike and have several narrow to rounded leaflets.”

Spotted Jewelweed

Also known as Impatiens Capensis is native to this area. You may also find yellow jewelweed around this part of the country.

The bright colors and the pattern caught my eye. I wish the photo was a little shaper. I need to go back and take some more photos of this beauty.

Bees in Heaven

So, lets say you are the bees in the 1st photo, and you see the site in photo 2. I can close my eyes and hear the conversation: You turn to your buddy (you can see him in the 1st photo, flying off to the left), and say something like, “I’m in flower heaven”. The bees have been so active this week. Life is good for these dudes.

Flower Symmetry

Nature has so much symmetry. Flower petals are just one example. This one is beautiful. Teresa took this photo this weekend. Wow.
