A Plant A Day Till Spring – Day 41 – Swamp Mallow

“Swamp Mallow” – Summer 2013 – Frick Park – Pittsburgh, PA

“A Plant a Day till Spring” will highlight one plant a day, starting on the winter solstice (December 21, 2013)… And ending on the vernal equinox (March 20, 2014)… If all goes to plan I will be starting with old Snowdrop photos from 2013… And ending with new photos of Snowdrops in 2014…

It’s the dead of winter and I woke up this morning thinking about sunshine and the local park… You could almost say I woke up with wildflowers on my mind…

Wildflowers on my mind… Wildflowers in my soul… Wildflowers quickly become an obsession… When you start to learn about them… Then even more importantly start to notice them… You realize they are everywhere… Eventually… You will want to grow them… And soon you have got them coming out of your ass… That’s just how it goes… Don’t be all judgy… I have had worse addictions than flower hoarding…

When I took the photograph above… A young girl ran up to me with her mother and asked if this plant was Hibiscus… She said her daughter wanted to know… I explained that it was… But told them the differences between our native variety and the tropical variety they had at home… I was even able to get them a few seeds off the plant… I explained how to grow them… And they left… I hope I see them again this year to see if they got them to grow…

Short but sweet… Hope you have a great day… As always…
