3" of snow in Shohola this morning...

but I'm not there!

I'm in San Francisco, foraging for miner's lettuce (Claytonia perfoliata),

admiring the poppies,

and wondering what the HELL this plant is!

Somebody, anybody, help an east coast gardener out. It reminds me of some kind of bugloss; it's giant and gorgeous and I want it!

A walk in Glen Canyon Park was the perfect recovery from a cross country flight. Red tailed hawks, wild flowers, foraging, sunshine, and dogs, among whom Stella is a standout.

Sorry about the snow, honey.

Wow! What a field of plenty! It looks lovely, and I can almost feel the warm breeze. Pennsylvania has remained... er... dusky today. Is the sun feeling okay?

And those fabulous purple numbers... are they some kind of echium?

I was thinking Liatris on steroids... but if you looked at it and thought bugloss, I doubt I'm right!

Looks like a glorious day.

Reading your blog is as good as a great book and almost as good as a visit. I love the immediacy of it. Have fun. Love Mum

Zoe is the plant genius on this round! She guessed the mystery plant was an Echium and she was right. No prize, only props. May props.
