As I said before, our goats passed and we have been avoiding our yard. We don’t want to mow. And, if you’ve been on this site for a few years, you know that we LOVE plant and bug identification. I couldn’t catch the cool zebra-looking dragonfly with my camera, but I did grab a bunch of weeds. I know some. Maybe you know the others? Left to right, in the above picture, we have white clover, dandelion, purple clover, fleabane (kids call it “baby daisies”), and plantain (affectionately known here as “pop guns” for their lovely shooting potential.)
Below, we have the stuff I don’t know. Anyone know the names?
One of the middle yellows has to be buttercup, but I don’t know which one. They’re not quite the same. Lemme turn them up to the camera so you can see:
Ooh, and did you notice my pretty ring? I just got it! I have a GORGEOUS wedding set that I never wear. I constantly scrape the babies with it; it gets really gross stuff in it that I’m never confident is actually removed; and water gets in between the bands and I have light little scars from the skin reaction. SO, I marched into Jared’s and said, “I want a wide, flat, ring made of something I could put in the dishwasher AND I want my kids names engraved on the OUTSIDE.” They had never heard of that. Anyway, 10mm band stainless steel, all five kids names, 100 bucks. If I lose it, I can get another. They love turning it to find themselves. And I get to look married. And the diaper cream wipes off.
