It was a beautiful morning today, and since I work from home on Mondays I had an extra few minutes before starting work. I used those minutes to walk around our yard taking a few photos:
This Fleabane is growing in our yard along the sidewalk to our driveway. I’m probably a bit negligent with mowing the lawn, and I’m not sure the patches of Fleabane I leave when I do mow are fully appreciated by others. Thanks to my tolerant wife!

You look at this photo and you think “Morning Glory.” And you’re right. It is a member of the morning-glory family - Convolvulaceae - as well as the core morning-glory genus – Ipomoea. But the common name “Wild Potato Vine” tells us a little more about the plant.

In the May 5 post, I mentioned that the wild hydrangea blossoms were forming their buds. Since I only had photos of prior year’s blossoms – which I think in themselves are quite beautiful – I wanted to make sure I got a chance to photograph them while in bloom. I managed to squeeze out some time (thanks for giving up work on the ceiling, Cindy!) on Saturday, June 6, and was rewarded with finding the hydrangea at peak of their blossom.
