Unidentifiable wildflowers without leaves. They look like Indian pipes but even trying to look them up like that I had no luck identifying them. Maybe 3″ tall.

Anyone out there knows what they are? Maryland, Baltimore city, Leakin Park.

P.S.: mystery solved. These beautiful tiny creatures are Orobanche Unifloras

This historic water wheel is located in the second largest park in the country within city limits, Leakin park. It was built in the 1850s and even though it hasn’t been operational since 1866! when toppled by flood waters it still stands and need to be preserved and protected. It might be the only one of its kind in the whole country.

I could not take photos but I’ve seen my first dragonfly and a Swallowtail butterfly this season today.

Magzilla, our AMSTAFF has rescued us in 2017 on a rainy day in May. It was a rough start because we didn’t know anything about him after him walking up on our property. But he has showed us what an amazing person he is and things became happily ever after pretty quick. He is very social, both with people and other pets. He loves his cat sisters and brothers and off course walking.
