Can you find wildflowers in an urban neighborhood?
Where I live is not true urban (i.e. downtown Binghamton, or neighborhoods in NYC) but that wasn't going to stop me. My mission: just walk around my neighborhood in the Binghamton, NY area and see what I could find.
This is what I found today in a three block radius of my house. This is nightshade.
Southernwood, which the Queen Anne's Lace is growing right in the middle of.
And finally, pokeweed. I found this in several neighborhood yards here. Who says pokeweed is for the south only?
Remember, earlier this summer, I wrote about a vining plant in my back yard, in a very shady spot, with grape like leaves and a cluster of something developing? Well, I decided to track it this since there must have been a flower involved at some time - and it is wild. If I don't have a different subject for next Wednesday, I may right about what is still a mystery plant.
