Ontario Wildflowers

A few photos of the stuff that grows wild around here. There’s lots, so I put most of them below the fold.

Queen Ann’s Lace and a hint of Dame’s Rocket marking the trail

Purple Dame’s Rocket

White Dame’s Rocket

Queen Anne’s Lace

Mystery plant, maybe bedstraw

Beautiful buttercups and a few forget-me-nots





All in a jumble

    Non-native speaker doing verse:

    Ontario space-lady

    She went to space,
    wearing Queen Anne’s lace
    riding a Dame’s rocket.

    She took with her
    a few cups of butter
    you’d better not forget her.

    She wore a crown of anemones and asters
    and had a bed filled with straw
    in the cabin of her space-canow.

    I was thinking of you when I posted these.

    That is a grand poem! I rather like the name Ontario space-lady, too. I hope you don’t mind if I use it to refer to myself from time to time

    Between this and the daisies, I feel nearly fortified enough to face the holiday weekend with Husband’s friends and family instead of trying to figure out how to commemorate my own anniversary (of leaving Canada), which coincidentally falls on the same date as the official Midsummer celebration here. I’m still considering staying home and doing fuck-all.
