More Blooms and a Special Bird

Although we are coming to the end of the colorful spring wildflowers and moving into the month of green and white (June), there are still many beautiful flowers to see. I’m a touch behind on the list, but here it is…

Flame Azalea
Yellow Iris
Sweet Cicely
Wild Anise
Indian Cucumber Root
Common Cinquefoil
Unknown species of Day Lilly
Ohio Spiderwort
Maple-leaf Viburnum
Highbush Cranberry (cultivated)
Soloman’s Plume
Two-lined Cynthia
Rattlesnake Weed
Hawkweed spp.
Arrowwood Viburnum
Rubus spp.
Fleabane

Also we have some exciting news on the bird front. A Summer Tanager is here! He has been visiting his reflection in the windows near the feeders, just like the Yellow-throated Warbler. What a treat to see this bird so up close without binoculars!
