For me, the last few weeks have been a mixed bag of plants.
My sister and I were on Lake Lilana on the Michigan Peninsula to the Ethereal Indian Pipe and scary white strawberries.
In South Maine, I saw purple tempting invaders and fresh white peppers and dolgo slices in my brother’s nursery.
In Columbus, the ruler’s residence and heritage garden was the Devil’s Rod (Aria Spinosa) In the flower (another name is Angelica, so go to the picture) and in the whole fruit of the southern magnifier.
Returning to Wine County, Cusa Doug Dud (filled with beautiful but shocking bugs) still holds its flowers as their fruits change from green to purple-red.
And Chatspeck looks set to get a good harvest of pawpaws that will ripen in the next six weeks.
Vitex. Over the past two years, in addition to Chatspek, it is now flourishing. It is a short (6 foot) pure-tree version. Lavender: Blue is a growing Mediterranean Central Asian plant that seems to be resistant to mid-summer flower buds, fresh leaves, and, importantly, deer. It can be cut back in early spring because it will recover from pruning. The flowers grow on new wood, so they do not cut the flower buds. The common name is associated with various hormonal effects in women and is used only with caution to prevent postpartum hemorrhage. Consult your doctor. The flowers of this mint-family plant are beautiful.
Oak-apple stalks. Insect-borne pathogens are abnormal growths of plants due to feeding and laying eggs. Gals are amazing and incredibly diverse (probably over 1,000 unique species on oak alone). One group of gallstones on oak trees is caused by several species of synaptic wasps. They have the shape of a small apple or a rotten apple – this is the only reason for their “apple” name. I had an Oak-Apple Gall Triptefa last week — first at some of the Michigan landings, a little red-spotted marble — on balls of oak leaves to Pingong, mostly with shiny fibers, but one pierced one. With headphones. This is one of the glamor of gall – often other insects find a place to live after the ghosts have left.
Jennifer Milbrandt, the natural resources experience coordinator of Restvilleville, who was a homeowner concerned about the number of “oak apples” on the ground, was on my phone for the second visit. He fell from the tree. Fortunately, Milbrandt assured the landlord that they would not be harmed. Although some insects, such as the gall bladder and the oak gallbladder, weaken the tree’s vascular system because they disrupt the nutrients and water flow in the trunks where they grow.
Finally, I got my latest copy of the “Arborist News” from the International Farmers Association and my friend from OSU Extension, Joe Bogs Al-Gall in Hamilton County.
Black flower? In addition to serving on the Governor’s Residence and Heritage Garden Board at Beckley’s Heritage Garden, I came across my friend Deb Kankeke, a gardener and author from Central Ohio, a gardener. She worked near one of her favorite family members, the Wise Man – Wise Salvia. This is a wise man, Salvia guarantees The black and blue, also known as the hummingbird sage or anise fragrance sage, was a stranger to me, a level that Debub did not quickly fix. What a plant!
Corolla, the petals of the flowers, cobalt are blue, and are covered with calyx, charcoal black. It is very photographed in dark blue with a dark blue cover. It is a spectacular plant with flower buds up to 5 or 6 feet long. The leaves, along with the stem of the garden, have double-sided properties, and the leaves smell really good. The hummingbird sage grows in sunny and tropical areas and regularly prunes used flower baskets. Next year I will definitely plant some. Or at least my wife Laura will let me – I’ll get closer to the trees.
Heritage Garden. So he takes care of the garden as he speaks and is still guided by former Ohio First Lady Tesfa Taft. I recently spoke with their volunteers at a lunchtime meeting, and it’s a sight to behold. It is a great inspiration for the garden – a wide range of geographical areas of Ohio, from the oak plains and Lake Ery to the plains and forests. This is difficult because not all of them are in the Columbus Beckley area, but they do an amazing job of trying to develop soil pH profiles using organic work and the like.
A.D. Apple’s John Chapman (Johnny Apples) planted in Ashland County in 1837 and the Japanese Friendly Seed and Bottle Flower Beds, and the Japanese Friendly Seed Seed are in 1912 Yoshino. Cherry (Prunus x Yedoisis), Presented to Ohio by the National Park Service and the National Arbor, Planted in 2002. The use of the governor’s residence began after the 1955 gift and has since placed 11 governors (with the exception of John Cassich). Bob and Tesfa Taft were there from 1999-2007.
The trees in and around the property were evaluated by OSU i-Tree at the beginning of the 21st century, and more than 100 trees provide more than $ 11,000 a year in environmental benefits to Bikley. You can search by “Google Analysis of the Environmental Use of Trees for Buyer’s Home and Heritage Garden” by Google.
At the end of my talk, my volunteers identified the plant families (related race groups, related groups) and suggested that Robert Frost’s poem was the “Rose family.”
“Roses are roses, (and they have always been roses.) But the theory goes now (apple roses,) and pearls are the same (plum, I guess.) They were.
Poetry permission allows many meanings, but I take the very direct meaning of rose / pl / plum as a rose meaning, because they are all in the Rose family. But let’s take the meaning of love, dear readers – you are sweet, sweet roses.
