I’ve been soaking up as much of the local flora as can fit in my brain.My “fix” has to last as I’ve no idea when I’ll be back.
Probably the last of the blossom;cherries are starting to fatten.The wildlife will get most of ’em.
And this, we decided, is an Eastern White Pine (Pinus strobus )
Who is “we”? Ms Daisyfae and me. After our laugh-a-minute meeting in NY a few years I hoped another trip Stateside might come up.There was an invitation to “come visit” and the little ducks were all in a row.
I’ve been walking her dog and he, being an old dog, is happy to set a slow pace.So I get to look carefully at all the trees I either don’t know or had forgotten. Isn’t the Internet wonderful!
This is Cercis canadensis or “Redbud” to most people.
We’re on our way out to dinner very soon so I’ll keep this brief.Have a Honey Locust (Gleditsia triacanthos) while I apply some war-paint…
We had a wonderful day out in Yellow Springs and had lunch with an old blog friend and tomorrow is set to be a busy day so if I’m not back til I get home you’ll know why.Here’s the “Absolutely Fabulous” Corinne from http://jafabrit.blogspot.com/p/jafatit.html We found a marvellous shop choc-full of vintage glitz and glamour.Like these shades. You’re rockin’ them, girl!
Now, I’m just going to try this beauty for size.
