Instead of Wildflowers




So far this year, most of the flowers I’ve seen trailside are the ones we usually consider weeds: broom, vinca and sorrel. Maybe it’s the unusually dry winter. In any case, the cultivated blooms at the Morcom Amphitheater of Roses are putting on a spectacular show. Wistaria is out, like this one that covers the Morcom pergola. Dogwood trees are also in bloom –I find them most frequently in the Rockridge neighborhood and, more rarely, in Glenview.
