Were you out in the heat yesterday? We squirrels laid low here in our Virginia suburbs, and you should do the same…unless you are filling those bird baths!
Ol’ Wally here did leap over to the pond earlier this week and I am pleased to report a stand of Joe-pye weed has sprouted along the shore.
Now this isn’t a plant that needs to have its feet wet, but I’m sure it likes the moisture all the same. The flower heads stand about six feet tall and are about to bloom.
We’ll be checking them for butterflies soon!
