Wordless Wednesday, 10/19/11 – October color
October 19, 2011
Autumn color doesn’t just come in leaves; it comes in berries, branches, late-blooming flowers and, of course, that brilliant blue October sky.
Once upon a time, when I photographed this shrub in 2009, I knew what it was. Now I can’t remember. If you know, please leave a comment below.

Wordless Wednesday, 8/10/11 – Milkweed (Asclepias syriaca)
August 10, 2011
It’s only fitting that we feature a photo of milkweed (this one is Asclepias syriaca) named by Carl Linneaus for the Greek god medicine and healing, Asclepius.
Son of Apollo and Coronis, father of five daughters: Hygia (“Hygiene”), Laso (“Medicine”), Aceso (“Healing”), Aglæa/Ægle (“Healthy glow), and Panacea (“Universal remedy”). The snake-entwined staff, often used as symbol in the medical world, is the rod of Asclepius.

Gary Wangler, Horticulturist/Manager of Grounds Operations/Horticultural Therapist of the St. Louis Children’s Hospital took this photo at a State Park last week, where some of the hospital patients were enjoying a week-long summer camp. Thanks for the gorgeous image, Gary!
