In Bloom Today: Cosmos, etc.

Here’s the Cosmo I mentioned yesterday, in a position today where I could photograph it. I think it is so pretty!

Here’s the Rose of Sharon flowers opened up during the day:

And another one:

Here’s the white Zinnia in better focus, in the sunshine:

Here’s another one of my Spiderwort plants, taken in the sunshine so it doesn’t show the true purple it is.

And here’s what was on said Spiderwort, which is why I took a photo in the sunshine – a pretty little Butterfly, which needs identification. Does anyone know what this is?

Here’s a bee moving around on my Echinacea (I’ll still get one sleeping when I can):

And in case you thought I was actually going to make it through a post without talking about the dreaded Poison Ivy – I took a photo of it *dying* *dying* *dying*. Die plants die:

Please know that I am not normally this way. There are just a few plants that I don’t like, here’s a short list off the top of my head:

  • Poison Ivy
  • Poison Oak
  • Poison Sumac
  • Garlic Mustard – taking over *everywhere*
  • Purple Loosestrife – choking out cattails – it frustrates me when I go to a public garden and see it growing there as a garden plant.

Oh, and speaking of stupid commercials again, what is up with that “Head On” one, the one where a lady is banging her head with something and they repeat “Head On” three times? I gain a headache from just listening to that commercial. If a person has a headache, banging something against it wouldn’t seem to be as beneficial as taking a dropperful of Cayenne extract in water or a glass of carrot juice, which is what helps me when I get a headache.
