a few that need a name - plant ID
I have a few plant Id's
the first is a shade lover - tho it does get some dappled morning sun. I have been lightly watering the area (no april showers 'round these parts) because I planted some cardinal flower in the area.
This is not in bloom (obvious from the photo) but I was quite taken by the leaves of this plant.
the first two photos are before two of the leaves have opened, and the third is of a near-by plant I assume is it's "kin"
the next - without bloom
I think might be jewel weed???
the next i think is solomons seal -
see what you can find when you get rid of (the battle still persists) that pesky garlic mustard):
and this last is a VERY old shrub - it was here when I came to this house almost 15yrs ago and was leggy then. I cut it back years ago morefor the blooms than for it's "form", and pulled a bunch of wild grape off of her last summer. It's just past it's peak (bloom wise) has a deep, sweet, whaft-y (?) scent and likes the sun:
I just have to add this p.s
(it made my day)
I saw (what I strongly believe is) an Ivory billed woodpecker...sigh!
I thought it was a pileated, but it had white on its' back
...I think I startled it when my jaw hit the ground- ran in to get the camera, but it was gone. What a wonderous site!
thanks for listening, and for any assistance
