|Elderberry Bush. |
This will make edible berries that make good jam!
|Berries from the Honeysuckle Bush. Ripe is dark RED.|
NOT edible for us but the birds like them.
|Daisy Fleabane. |
Used by early settlers to chase away--fleas.
|Not sure what this one is but that is a REAL ladybug.|
Not an Asian Beetle, the kind that bite.
|Milkweed, the plant that the Monarch Butterfly lays it's eggs.|
And a REAL honeybee--they look fuzzy.
Honey bees are a very important part of our natural order.
They fertilize the plants to make fruit-no bees, no fruit!
|Clover. Clover smells heavenly.|
|Not sure what this one is...|
|Not sure here either.|
|Purple Coneflower--a medicinal plant.|
If you dig up and roast the root, it makes a coffee-like beverage.
|Cattails--a lot of these in our marsh.|
