OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
August 23, 2017
This photo was taken yesterday outside on the patio of the restaurant we ate at. I felt like I was part of a Monet Painting. Just absolutely beautiful! The guides at the garden told us that the Lotus Flower was at its peek yesterday and the flower only blooms for 4 days. We got to see beauty! I blogged about the Lotus flower just last week.
Today I would like to talk about Joe Pye Weed. It is in my photo above in front of weeping willow. It is a breath taking light purple color that grows to 4 ft tall. It has a strong root system which spreads in a moist soil area. It blooms in late summer….right now.
Do not let the name fool you…Joe Pye is not a weed!
