Jewels in the sunlight

Arizona Bull Thistle. I found this specimen high on a cinder cone, a former volcano, in northeast Arizona in early June. There were many growing on this southeastern-facing slope. They were healthy attracting bees and other insects. Prehistoric ruins were nearby.

Delicate shade seeking native plant

Delicate Plant. I’m told that this is a Meadow-rue… preferring humus-rich, moist, well-drained sites, known for growing on rock walls around waterfalls and water seepage areas. I find them in the cool shading niches. My themes in this project: Prehistory and Natural History. “I go to Nature to be soothed and healed, and to have my senses put in order.” John Burroughs 1837 - 1921.

Food source for indigenous people and animals.

Sumac Berries. AKA Lemonade Bush, 100% edible native plant found everywhere in northern Arizona. This is the earliest that I have seen the berries, is this about the climate? I’ve read that parts of this bush were used in many ways now lost by prehistoric people. My themes in this project: Prehistory and Natural History. “I go to Nature to be soothed and healed, and to have my senses put in order.” John Burroughs 1837 - 1921.

Like candles on my birthday cake.
