I'm on a mission to learn as much as possible about the plants, birds, wildflowers, weeds, animals and so forth in my area. I've been compiling some photos from my walks around my home so that I can sit down and finally identify some of these plants and flowers. I realize this might not be overly interesting to some but I find it fascinating and I think it's about time I know all about my surroundings.
So now I will introduce you to some of my new friends...
These first two pictures are of White Sweetclover.
Black Willow / Godding's Willow
Ngaio tree / Lollypop tree
Hooker's Evening Primrose
Castor Bean- the source of castor oil and ricin, which is deadly.
I have several that I've yet to identify and many that I still need to photograph but I think I'm off to a good start. Since I'll be home most of the summer I think this will be a great way to pass the time and educate myself and the kids. I hope you enjoyed this because there will be more to come in the following weeks.
If I misidentified any of these feel free to correct me! You can read Part II here.
