PHOTOPAGE 394

   

   

 

 Late June 2009

Summertime and "don't forget to eat the Daylilies" - large beautiful trumpet shaped flowers with the flavor and texture of lettuce. Amuse or alarm your friends by stuffing them into your mouth (after checking for insects)

However, don't stuff the stinging Nettle, below, into your mouth before cooking!

394.2 Deptford Pinks Dianthus Armeria

^^^ Startlingly intense visually, the Deptford Pink is small (1/2 inch) hiding among other foliage
