Wrapping up July …

St. John’s wort’s yellow flowers always attract my attention because the plant shares my name. Find out what’s in the name in this vintage article from 2012.

This month I learned that chicory flowers (Cichorium sp) last only one day. On a foggy morning I found this one, barely open and doomed to wilt by afternoon. Learn more at #bioPGH Blog: Chicory, Dickory, Dock – The Flowers are on the Clock.

We had several spectacular sunrises in July, especially this on the 17th.

One thought on “Wrapping Up July

  1. Alas, we move on to August, the dog days of summer. Glad to see that Mother Nature is still providing us with some colorful “treats” even though it’s been a hot and dry summer for us. Thanks for sharing.
