Out and About

Did I tell you that I like to prowl down alleys? No, I’m not a cat burglar, but as a gardener, I think backyards are often more interesting than front yards! So I was out and about today with my camera and here’s some of what I found.

  1. Great pictures!! I wonder if pokeweed is the same herb my grandma in Missouri went out to the woods to pick when she said “I’m going to pick some poke for dinner”. It was good!! Yes, I think that is persicaria Painters Pallette there. Looks just like mine that I took for dead when the ferns sort of smothered it. However, it is now peeking over the ferns. Scary strong that plant is!

  2. It is a scary strong plant–probably why it’s out in the alley. I’ve heard about poke shoots. Sometimes pokeweed pops up in my garden–I think the birds plant it!
