Fifty percent chance

Well, I bet you were waiting on pins and needles to know the answer to was it coming or going from yesterday’s post. πŸ˜‰ So I will get right to the answer.

Yesterday’s photo showed the bee coming out. This photo shows it just starting to back out. It had disappeared in the flower completely to get its reward. And no I could not have told you by any detail whether the bee was coming or going in yesterday’s photo. LOL
A Potato-vine was climbing the fence.
The Greeneyes (Berlandiera betonicifolia) looked silvery covered in the road dust. Time to get back on the road to my next destination of my “short” morning side trip.
It was two for two on my quest! The False Foxglove (Aureolaria grandiflora) was blooming too!
What a beautiful flower! This lovely plant is semi-parasitic to oaks. What does that mean semi-parasitic? It means that the plant gets its food from the host (the oaks) but also contains chlorophyll and is capable of photosynthesis.
Bees were visiting.
Whorled Milkweed (Asclepias verticillata) was on the roadside too.

I could not help myself. So I made one more quick and final stop to see if the Bluebells (Eustoma grandiflorum) were blooming.

Yep the Bluebells were blooming! However this field was not loaded with plants this year.

Keep looking!

The more you know, the more you see and the more you see, the more you know


  1. The bee in the Potato Vine reminded me of this evening here for us.
    We were on the farmhouse front porch watching the storm clouds. Close enough to see lightning and hear thunder but no rain for us. But the temp dropped 20 degrees. I have a few jimsonweeds growing around the house. 2 came up on their own here and added more in a planned landscape. As we sat on the porch, a hawkmoth kept buzzing past us. Almost like having a bat fly in your face. Then we got a very close view of it feeding IN the flower. It would totally disappear except backlight showed it through the white petals. So cool!

  2. Kathy, we didn’t get any of the lightening but did get .08”. The temperature did not drop like that here. Just stayed in the 70’s all day. I certainly enjoyed it. And the moth sounds amazing in the jimsomweed. Thanks for sharing. I get this great mental picture of you and gary sitting in your rocking chairs 😊

    1. It was a bench not a rocking chair. And I lasted 5 minutes when the distraction of nature showed up. That is about norm for me.
