Visiting Some Neighbors

Here's one more bloodroot shot, because the little bee deserved some attention. The colony in the sunshine beside the road was buzzing with bees on Monday. Images below are of animal neighbors visited on Sunday and Monday.


  1. Nothing special about these pictures, and they don't really belong here, but I'm not feeling very wordy.

  2. I'm pretty sure horses belong everywhere.

    I have been giving some thought to the bloodroot question. I think the bee is definitely humming to himself on bloodroot in today's image, but I have begun to suspect that the photos from the other day are round-lobed hepatica. (I've been trying to figure out some flowers I found in the rain, on a steep hillside. Making pictures of their wet selves caused damage to my knees and backside, but they're very pretty, which is why I am obsessing about 'em one way or another. You see how I am.)

  3. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And do you know, "hepatica" was the first word that came to my mind in the woods, but I talked myself out of it. But??????
    Well, this will require some investigation, and the big, know-it-all, three-volume botanical resource is at the bookstore, not at home.

  4. GERRY IS RIGHT! I WAS WRONG! Thank you, Gerry, for setting me straight! Now I must go back and correct other posts. Sigh!

  5. Wuff. You were up at 4:00 am looking up flowers? In a know-it-all three-volume botanical resource? Oh my. Well, I'm glad you and the know-it-all resource confirmed my suspicions, but I'm sorry you went to so much trouble. I think I should take you out for coffee. In Northport.
