The big blue truck doesn’t like spending to much time in the driveway. As headed out for my afternoon walk the headlights took on the appearance of eyes that followed me through the yard. “C’mon”they said. I stepped a little closer and jiggled a finger in my ear. Did I really just hear that? The engine seemed to growl a little and I heard “You know it’s not really good for moving parts to be still for too long.” I thought to myself, “Okay, I have been in front of the computer for too long and the Wi-Fi network has fried my brain. Ol’ Blue doesn’t really talk… Or does he?” I retrieved the mass of keys from my belt and clicked the button on the government that unlocks the doors of the truck. A mischievous grin forms across the bumper as I passed the fender and before I knew it the big blue truck was turning onto Peter’s Creek road. Ol’Blue knows the back roads well and took me to a place where we could get out of the house and still avoid any social distancing problems. Almost as soon as we left the main road I spotted a patch of brushes that looked like a small snow storm had taken place in a 12 foot long area.
The bush is Spiraea prunifolia or more commonly known as “Bridal Wreath. Once planted as an ornamental along the borders of yards and gardens it has escaped into the wild places. The early Spring flowers are a nectar source for butterflies and many other pollinators. It’s viewed as an invasive species by naturalists but at the same time having those early blooms can also strengthen the pollenators populations and therefore pay off inn the long run.
Ol’Blue must have known that I needed to see this one in all its glory as much as he needed to be on the road because it was awesome to find it quietly spreading it’s joy on the edge of the a back road.
