    Cathy,
    You'd better get rif of those purple berries or you will have purple spots on you car. Birds love them and spread the seeds everywhere. That is poke.
    I'm not sure about the other but it does have a unique form. ANd it looks like it harbors lots of seed. Better watch out. I'm sure someone will onow what it is.

    More floral closeups from TX. This is a single blossom on the variegated Calomondin Orange, (Citrofortunella mitis variegata) Too bad you can't get that citrus blossom smell

    Kumson's Forsythia

    For a more realistic view of the foliage on this plant, see below. I just got it today - in time to get it in the ground and established for next spring.

    OH!

    I adore this thread!

    Tom! What a great shot of that frog! My eyes are glued to the screen every time I see it.

    I need to do more of the closeup shots.

    Don't have a Burg to show, but I do have some very odd looking bugz! Could these possibly be Lady Bug larva? The biggest one is bigger than a LB, but larval stages can be bigger that adult stages of many insects, so wondered.

    I finally got some Queen Anne's Lace to grow, seems it is a biennial. Hope the pink of the opening buds shows up. I collected the seeds using netting "tutus" as recommended and I planted these last year...had no idea what they were but decided to let them grow this year when they came up. the plants are as tall as me (nearly 6') and so feathery. The mother plants weren't nearly as tall, guess I fertilized them!
    Sorry about the focus, it was about to rain and I ran out of time. Still, I never knew there was this bright pink in the white flowers until now. Perhaps it disappears as the blossoms open wider and if the rain hasn't smashed them, I will try again tomorrow and see what they look like!

    Gulf Frits

    Well, it's that time of the year again.

    The Gulf Frits are chowing down on my Passiflora Lady Margaret.

    Kathy,
    Let me tell you, them poke berries are so invasive it's ridicilious. The roots are huge and I do mean huge. Took me about 3 hrs. to dig up 5 of them and now I've noticed there are still some more out there! Eek! I'm sure they sprout from the roots if you just cut them off too.
    Happy Growing,

    I noticed a few more this year and didn't wait for their cutesy hot pink belly buttons to form. I just didn't like that they were muscling in on my daylilies. I don't think I pulled them all or all of them(you are right, I suspect some roots left even after pulling) !

    Wow!

    I think I need to play around with my camera's digital macro a little more. The picture was huge, but I cropped it, then resized it.
