Snapshot: June 29, 2007

Goatsbeard or salsify: here's that ineffably
perfect globe of winged seeds that my daughter
named her farm after.

What’s blooming in the meadow:

Birdsfoot trefoil
Black-eyed Susan
Heal-all (almost finished)
Hoary alyssum
Milkweed, beginning
Ox-Eye daisy, has been blooming a long time,
but persists over months
Red clover
Speckled knapweed, or Russian thistle,
setting countless buds, but only two low
mowed or trambled ones are blooming.
St. John’s Wort, just beginning, will bloom
for quite while, has a long season.
Yarrow, white
Sulfur cinquefoil
White campion

Feeder birds today were:
American Goldfinch pair
Black-Capped chickadee
Blue Jay
Hairy Woodpecker pair
Common Grackle pair
Mourning dove pair
Rose-Breasted Grosbeak pair
White-Breasted nuthatch, male

Tomorrow I will look again!
