It has been so HOT and with little rain there is no water running thru the creek, but the flowers are so pretty this summer.
Black-eyed Susan (rudbeckia)
They grow in the wild and are edible and nutritious. I haven’t tried them (and probably not going to).
Vitex (angus-castus) or Chaste Tree
All parts of this plant are edible. Joe Pye is said to be named after a Native American, Jopi who used this plant to cure typhus in the 1800’s.
