Not Quite There Yet

It’s the journey right? Well, I’m in agreement with that. So we took our time traveling to our destination goals.

Oak galls!

The Nursery Web Spider (Pisauridae) looked like it was floating. But there was a web.

Walking along a fire break we found Seedbox (Ludwigia alternifolia). This is a cool plant for its cube-shaped seed pod.

St. Andrew’s Cross (Hypericum hypericoides) is a native and a shade lover!

Another Ludwigia, but it was different. It had narrow leaves. Could it be something new or was it just a different leaf growth. It needed further investigating at home. And it turned out to be a new species for me, the Narrowleaf Primrose-Willow (Ludwigia linearis)!

Earflower Lobelias (Lobelia appendiculata) were still blooming!

The reflection was as clear as mud. LOL. The pond was a little more muddier than the last time I thought.

The Cream Wild Indigo (Baptisia bracteata) was done.

Green Milkweed (Asclepias viridis) was fluffing. And it was nice to see fertile seeds!
Getting closer to our destination. However this spot was a gold mine last time. So of course we looked it over carefully again. Who knows what might have popped out. And Jeanne found another bryophyte to collect.

The destination, in the next post. ๐Ÿ™‚
