Miscellany of the week

Black cohosh this week.

While picking wineberries, my son and I found this cohosh individual with unique foliage.

Nearby the cohosh, ramps were blooming. Their foliage has completely vanished.

Garden harvest: calendula blossoms for an oil infusion, lemon balm for drying, Echinacea purpurea, Queen Anne's lace, & wild bergamot for cut flowers.

Our 'Christmas tree' - a potted red cedar that I'm always threatening with eviction from its pot and into the wild. Wonder who will be hatching from these eggs.

Great spangled fritillary on swamp milkweed.
