These morning hikes are getting more difficult as the temperature and humidity rises around here. The wildflowers don’t seem to mind, though. I love seeing the Queen Anne’s Lace(Daucus carota, featured photo); it reminds me of long ago, when I thought it was the prettiest flower I had ever seen. No matter that everyone else called it a weed!
The lacy Queen Anne is beautiful next to chicory. Add some sunflowers, and you have a charming country bouquet.
And then there’s burdock. In the fall, it will dry and stick to everything. Remember getting it stuck in your hair, your sweater, your mittens?
Did you know that jewel weed salves were a folklore remedy for poison ivy and other skin irritations?
After rain and humidity, the mushrooms have started popping up.
Get out there and enjoy the day!
