A hint of Normalcy as Wildlife Abounds — pat morss

Our weekend included a peaceful and excellent dinner out with friends on the deck of Oliver’s Harbor Restaurant, and a first sail of the season. And then there’s the local wildlife that continues to flourish.

Massachusetts wildflowers & weeds | sweet beach pea vs. bittersweet nightshade, Good Harbor Beach dune plants

Beach pea (also known as sand pea) is a sweet native wildflower (Lathyrus japonicus) that’s easy to spot in the dunes– from any of the walkways.

The flowers with the purple petals and yellow stamen daggers in the mix are “bittersweet nightshade” also known as climbing nightshade and woody nightshade. Solanum dulcamara is poisonous and invasive and thus weed.

The short story: There’s a lot less to chose from. Inventory is still 40% lower than last year even though it’s up 22% in the last 2 months. But just about everything is selling.
