Another in the "shades of summer" series, today I am feeling blue. But in a good way!Tall Larkspur, Delphinium exaltatum against a backdrop of Purple Coneflower? Although it is somewhat rare to find in nature, this was easy to grow from seed and "plays" well with the other plants in my backyard.
A personal favorite- ripe blueberries fresh picked from the yard. Several types of blueberries are native to Ohio, however you'll find the high bush berries in bogs and the low-to-the-ground berries in acidic woodlands.
Not totally "native," I admit to growing these jumbo hybrids at home. How else could I get these gigantic berries?
Let's hope for gentle rains; hold the winds please.
