The Monarch Butterflies love the Purple Coneflowers.
Finally! The Monarch Butterflies have found the milkweed :)
A load of brush headed for the new brush pile. We have a LOT of brush and a lot of it comes equipped with thorns.
This is the new brush pile we have started. There are a LOT of thorns in this pile.
This is a branch of one of the Osage orange trees. You can see the fruits on it. This is only a small section of one branch on a very large tree. Ouch! Besides having the large fruit that can fall on your head unexpectedly, they also have two inch thorns that are extremely sharp and tough and can penetrate anything.
As you can see from this one in my husband's hand the Osage orange fruit are BIG! The trees are quite tall and when the fruit falls, look out! Too bad they are not good for anything.
Wild Grapes! We have a TON of grapevines growing wild. Most of the fruit is HIGH in the trees. I found this vine with several bunches of fruit lower to the ground where I could see them. The grapes are so little!
Another Mystery Tree. I am going to try and identify the trees we have growing on the property. This is another that I do not yet know the name of.
