Denis C. Quinn

Swan Harbor Farm Pond- going in on left
Harford County, MD

Today the blooms/nectar source was almost exclusively Thoroughwort (Eupatorium hyssopifolium), with scant Purple Loosetrife still in bloom. The raised pond with the asphalt walkway had many more blooms, however today time was my enemy and I was unable to do that pond area.
