Another of the #july_flowers is the Chicory or Cichorium intibus, also called blue cornflower. An introduced species here, common along roadsides. Scraggly plant with beautifully colored blossoms, each lasting a single morning and closing by noon.
And these vigorous and aggressive cultivated lilies are of Asian origin I believe. Pretty invaders. #july_flowers
The fuzzy pinkish purple umbels are Joe Pye Weed, or Mistflower (Eupatorium sp.) There are several native species but I don't know one from another. #july_flowers
Now #july_flowers. Here is a Michigan lily (Lilium michiganense) standing six feet tall and blooming in shade.
@makyo woa, that's awesome! Ive never imagined her in anything like that. its cool to see her in other genres like fantasy
Even the vegetable garden has #June_flowers. First snow pea blossoms finally appear. A bit late, I think due to so many gloomy cloudy days.
Wild strawberries suddenly appeared around my juvenile lilacs this week. 1st photo is a closeup. 2nd has a dozen or more tiny berries in it. See how many you can find? #June_flowers
Catalpa blossoms (C. speciosa I believe) on trees in our front yard. Catalpa is a legume, and bears long bean-like pods in the fall. The flowers are intricately striped and dotted, with a rich fragrance to rival tropical orchids. #June_flowers

20,000 pillocks signed a petition to cancel Amazon's adaptation of Good Omens for "making Satanism seem normal".
Just one problem: they addressed it to Netflix.
@Altivo: Err, no, cancel that. You didn't need a cassette adapter to play a cassette. Dumb horse. THIS is what went with the cassette adapter. To play CDs of course. Anyone young enough to ask what a CD is?😜
