I meant to post this the other day when I uploaded two other photos from our bicycle rides, but I lost my place as I am often wont to do, don't you know.
Near the end of the trail (coming home that is) we pass this field which, at the moment, is rather resplendent with rows of Purple Loosestrife alternating with rows of Queen Anne's Lace. There is a lot of worry about the spread of Loosestrife and its potential to overtake native species, or at least this concern existed several years ago. Still, it looks rather striking. Pretty as a picture so to speak.
