I've really only made educated guesses about the plant IDs, so I'd welcome disagreement; sharp-eyed readers should feel free to leave their corrections. As noted in an earlier blog post, I need to step up my photography for definitive plant ID. I'm kicking this out of draft mode because I've lost the drive to drill down on plant species for the moment.
Achillea millefolium (Yarrow). I recently read that you can place this on wounds and it acts to stop the bleeding. Useful information to know. I'm a big fan of yarrow but Juli pretends to not like it. I do think it looks best when it's not in a dense patch.
