|PASQ UE FLOWER AND MEADOW R UE|
|THIMBLE WEED FLOWER|
We are pleased that this summer’s Sunday’s will be graced with services at our old Christ Episcopal Church. I may even start ringing the bell again, like old times.
Anemone canadensis, the thimble weed, is blooming. It is native to meadows and shores in the upper Midwest.
Also blooming now is the meadow rue, Thalictrum dioica, native to the upper Midwest and the east coast in rocky woods, ravines and out washes. The interesting seed heads of Anome patens, called Pasque flower or prairie smoke, are evident now. All three plants are in the Ranunculaceae, the buttercup family, and are often grown in gardens.
