Christmas in July-July 12, 2015

It’s the height of summer and some of the colorful plants remind me of Christmas.  The Lead Plant (Amorpha canescens) is such a plant.  Its fine-leaved appearance is almost that of an evergreen tree and its flowers are florescent.  Coupled with the other native plants blooming, the lead plant looks like the centerpiece for a Christmas display.  Wild flowers have always been the gift of summer.  We don’t just get gifts at Christmas.July 12-2015
