Crow’s Nest: more blooms

September 28, 2011

The flowering season is not over yet. Here are a couple of things now in bloom:

Here’s a top-down view of turtlehead (Chelone glabra). I tried to get a photo from the side of this distinctive, heavy-lipped flower in the Scrophulariaceae, along with the bumblebees disappearing into the flower interior, but they didn’t turn out.

And along with the yellow goldenrods that are glorious right now there is the white golderod, or silverrod, blooming (Solidago bicolor). It’s more subtle but just as lovely.
