I just love this one Sheila. I like all your pictures but, naturally, some even more than others. This one … I just love it!
Thank you, John! You are too kind. I was thrilled to see it in bloom and close enough to get a sharp look see. 🙂
As it happens, I found buttonbush on Sunday — and a friend was visiting. I was surprised to find it, since ours have been blooming for some time, and are beginning to form seed. I didn’t know that honey bells was another name; I like that one, too.
I don’t know if you can see the link, since no color change appears: it’s “a friend was visiting.”
That’s a great shot, Linda! It’s native to a large part of North America – cool that it’s at the same stage.
It’s such a neat looking plant. I love when plants have all these different common names. Help with the titles too! lol 🙂
Thank you, Graham – kinda weird and wonderful looking plant eh?
