  1. Well, look at you. I’ve been looking and looking for some pokeweed, and you found it. I know it grows around here, but I haven’t seen any in a couple of years. If I ever find some, I can use it for a post — maybe I’ll give it another go!

    • ha ha…this is growing in the garden at work – a wild, native space…but since it is invasive or toxic or something they keep weeding it out. I was actually a bit upset last year and said ‘can’t we make an exception since it grew there on its own, and I love photographing it.’ Was told ‘no’ but this year, this one managed to slip by so I’ve not mentioned it and everyone is too busy to kill it. 🙂

      • Hooray! for the survivors! It is such a pretty thing. I think the berries might be toxic, but the young leaves are edible — at least, if they’re processed properly. I’m no forager, so I’d have to look up the details. You just stay mum, and keep photographing!
