Coltsfoot (Tussilago farfara) hasn’t bloomed in five months but the leaves are still growing. Some are now three times the size of a real colt’s foot.
Pokeweed (Phytolacca americana) is blooming and developing fruit.
But some plants are not faring so well. This porcelain berry has chlorosis, a condition that makes its leaves turn white. This plant is invasive so I don’t feel so bad.
Get outdoors today before the weather gets hot. It will be in the 90s next week!
