Blooms and Blossoms
It is a good year for Dame’s Rocket. We are seeing it everywhere. It seems to thrive in roadside ditches and the woods. I love the variety of colors, from white to pink to deep purple.
There are a couple of Tuliptrees next to the road in the Park. I have walked and driven by them for years, thinking they were Maple Trees, until I happened to notice the blossoms a couple of years ago. They are actually Yellow Poplars, but get their common name from the tulip-like blossoms.
Lots of Clover around now too. This purple one made a nice subject for the Macro lens.
