Last Friday, during my lunch break, I took a walk along the Chenango River in downtown Binghamton, New York with a work friend.
So, what kind of wildflowers can you find on a river path along a shallow river in a urban area? A sister of my work friend helped me figure it out (more or less - thank you for suffering through my sometimes blurry iPhone snapshots).
This is a Traidescantias (spiderwort). It's hard to see their triangular nature.
Penstemon digitalis (a wild foxglove). (you can see the really high Chenango River in the background.)
And now for my mystery wildflower. My friend's sister couldn't identify this so....any guesses? I keep thinking it's some kind of chickweed, but I think my friend would have known if it had been.
Next week I hope to take another walk with my friend - this time an urban one.
And now: this is my last "Spring Things" feature of the year. Summer begins Friday, and this is a seasonal feature. So, what would you like to see here for summer? (sorry, we are not near an ocean). And, what might be a "cute" name for my summer Wednesday feature? No prizes if your idea is used - just my thanks, and a shout out to your blog (if you have one).
Today is World Sauntering Day. When is the last time you promenaded on your land or neighborhood?
