One in Adelphi, Maryland, one in Wildwood, Florida, one at the US National Arboretum with a grandfatherly interest in many more around the DC area (unless noted, pictures are taken the day of post)

View from C-3 across the path to C-5....pretty nice
Not a view that anyone really sees much. I was on my hands and knees weeding out Mulberry weed and Smartweed. This area is notorious for both of those weeds but the pre-emergent herbicide we put down this spring worked well for the six months they were supposed to. I'm seeing a bit of germination now but an hour or so of weeding took care of them. The Bloodgrass and Iris are apparent. The chartreuse conifer is a selections of Glytostrobon pensilis and the pink flowers in the mid-ground are wild collected Anemone hupehensis.
