well the rubus has finally bloomed. noticed it last year, and thought it might need more sunlight to bloom. found out this year (a vague reading recollection) that they don't bloom until the second year? it does appear that this is indeed the case.

these guys are so friendly - sometimes they perch on my hands as I water the plants.

Lapsana communis aka Nipplewort is really running rampant in the area by the dilapidated garage. quite alarming how fast they've multiplied since last year - a definate warning sign right there.

deer tongue grass - mixed in with some circaea I think?

same garage area -I transplanted a few back up in this area from where they volunteered a plenty (other side of the house). they don't seem too happy here - I think they need a bit more sunlight than they're getting in this location.
