A Boston expression for an intelligent person and a way for me to remember the name of this plant – Smartweed.

These wildflowers are everywhere in a place I frequent. They might be wild chervil.

Sometimes names confuse me. Yes, it’s purple but what is loose and why strife?

I’ve seen chicory flowers budding, blooming, closing, and dying before but I don’t believe I’ve seen one in the process of opening before.

There is a vine growing on my arbor that sprouted these tiny dark purple flowers. No one on iNaturalist knows – do you? I don’t. Maybe it’s black swallow wort http://www.massaudubon.org/learn/nature-wildlife/invasive-plants/swallow-wort

One of a dozen yellow wildflowers I have seen lately. I downloaded the app iNaturalist and it’s been great for identification. This is a Sulphur Cinquefoil.
