A variety of Crown Vetch
Queen Anne's Lace
I like this one because my mother gathered it to use in her wedding bouquet.
Beautiful even before the flower unfolds.
A pretty addition to roadsides and ditches around here.
All of these plants colonize bare or disturbed ground, like the vacant lots at the end of our street. It saddens me to think that once all the houses get built these will all disappear, replaced by the uniformity of grass lawns - a stunning loss of biodiversity in a small area, at huge cost.
And where will I go to get pictures then?
