Cassia: Wow on the Yellow

I remembered this delightful bush as I wondered some lesser traveled paths at Magnolia Plantation and Gardens a few weeks ago.

This plant is surely the gift that keeps on giving, as it was just covered with these shapely yellow blooms.

Some of the singles left on a stalk were real stand-outs.

Most of the plant was covered with these clusters.

I had posted images of this plant last December not knowing what it was. Fortuitously, the most recent Magnolia Newsletter had an image and identified it asĀ  Cassia.

A little plant research shows there are a number of varieties of Cassia and I’m just going to let it go at that.

Katydid, Swamp Sunflower

I spotted this Katydid in a tall stand of swamp sunflowers, a bit above my eye level.

The bloom shows signs of having been snacked on by something. If it was this fellow he had gone into post-lunch stupor as he never moved in the ten minutes or so I was there.
