Buttonweed (Diodia virginiana)

Buttonweed (Diodia virginiana)


Here’s a plant that I first found two years ago at the hotel we’re staying in right now. It’s still growing here, but I could not remember its name. I went through my photo tags and found that it is Buttonweed (Diodia virginiana). It reminds me a lot of bluets, but these are hairy, and they’re in bloom in mid-July.

While I was outside this morning (it was already in the 90’s at 7:00am), I spied this plant too. It is unknown to me:
Unknown species
I’ll try to figure it out when I get home. I’m pretty sure this is common purslane (Portulaca oleracea).

I also found some dock that had gone to seed:

Before it got too hot, we went to visit Va’s aunt. She had yet another unknown plant blooming in her yard:

I feel that I should know this one though. It seems very familiar.
