Ozark Life ~ August 7 2022
Nothing too different today for activity— a few neighborhood walks, some chores and regular activities and that’s it.
@nomaddreamer and I drove for four hours to get our son to the airport to get back to college, so that took a fair chunk out of our day.
While we were walking, we came across a few flowers I had noticed before but didn’t recognize. As I love learning about plant life and most of it here is new to me, I took some time to research.
Trumpet Vine, native to the Ozarks and surrounding area. It attracts lots of birds, especially hummingbirds. Hardy and tolerant; I think I may get some starts for the way back of the yard. It’s vigorous but I think it’d be a beautiful backdrop!
Asiatic Daylily, invasive to this area. The vibrant blue drew me in; apparently it was used as a dye in Japan and China. I see why.
The moon taking its place in our Ozark sky.
That’s all for now. Have an amazingly Actifitty day, Hive tribe!!
