2 July 2022

Seen this week at Duck Hole, listed in picture order:

  • Catnip (Nepeta cataria) is in bloom (at high). No cats have been current however loads of canines walked by. The Duck Hole path is fashionable with dog-walking providers.
  • Widespread mullein (Verbascum thapsus) is 5-6 ft tall now with a spike of yellow flowers.
  • Moth mullein (Verbascum blattaria) is a way more delicate plant than widespread mullein.
  • Daisy fleabane (Erigeron annuus) solid petal-shadows on its disks because it opened within the morning solar.
  • Leaf miners are lively now, making squiggles contained in the leaves. (I don’t know the identification of the leaves pictured beneath.)
  • Teasel (Dipsacus sp.) hasn’t bloomed but however it’s getting shut.
