Yesterday I took Gabe to a farmer’s market at Choate Park in Medway. Except the farmer’s market was nowhere to be found. But we had a nice walk.
There were several types of goldenrod in bloom. As with asters, I am not inclined to learn the specific types, even though it is native. There are just an overwhelming number of varieties, and they are all uniformly yellow. Bla.
Joe-pye weed, eupatorium purpureum, is also in bloom. Butterflies love this stuff. It is native as well, and it is unfortunate that it has "weed" in its name, because it makes a lovely garden plant.
There were some crazy mushrooms by the ball park. They were as much as eight inches tall!
I don’t know what this water plant is, but I love it.
The stroller wasn’t really made for rolling over gravel. Gabe got irritable with me for all the bouncing and jiggling.
