Here are my latest photos of summer blooming native plants in Philadelphia. Native flowers are my first love. I am fascinated by the shapes, the colors the scents. I like watching insects sip nectar, lay eggs and eat the leaves and petals. Everything about native plants fascinates me.

Here are some the of the native plant photos I have taken in the past week.  All the photos were taken at Bowman’s Hill Wildflower Preserve in New Hope, PA and are native to Philadelphia and the Mid-Atlantic region. Enjoy!
