The Pasty Cam is graced with a colorful bouquet of blooms today, courtesy of Gladys Collins and her beautiful West Ishpeming flower garden. I am by no means a botanist, so with the help of the Internet, I think Iíve correctly identified the flowers in todayís photos. Iím not positive on the first and last ones, but I know for sure the second and third flowers are hollyhocks. We have the same color hollyhocks growing in our garden this year, too and Iím waiting for a few other colors to bloom yet. I wonder if anyone still makes hollyhock dolls like we did as kids. In case youíve forgotten how, the Old Farmerís Almanac has an instruction page here: How to Make Hollyhock Flower Dolls.

Sit back and enjoy Five Aces Media Upper Michigan Scenery video for July, when Lake Superior is still cold, but the days are warm and long.

I remember as a kid trapping bumble bees in
hollyhocks...man, did they get angry.

Greetings from the Keweenaw!!

Good looking pics & video!!

We are setup in Gay at the Dockside Resort,
staring at the big lake, it's rough to take!! :)
Came in from Grand Marais on H58 to Munising....
Alex told my wife, I wish you could have one more
blast on the Wing on that road, it's fantastic!

We'll be here until about 8/15. Cooler weather
the rest of the week, the last couple of days
were like a sauna!

Mary, I will reach out soon as Vicki has us
squared away, lol. Hopefully we can get together
for a few hugs & laughs.

Have a great day all.... hate to rub it in... but
we're enjoying finally being here in the,
Greatest Place on Earth!

UC...I agree with you! The Keweenaw is the,
Greatest Place on Earth!

Welcome Uncle Chuck!!

I just received a message from Gladys and she said the flower in the first two photos is called Rudbeckia Hirta and is in the black eyed Susan family. The bottom photo is an Echinacea Purple Coneflower. Thanks for the info, Gladys!


By Mary Drew at Pasty Central (Mdrew) on Tuesday, July 20, 2021 - 12:43 pm:

Uncle Chuck...we definitely need to get together!


By jbuck (Jbuck) on Tuesday, July 20, 2021 - 06:00 pm:

Good job Mary!

Yes, the first picture is just as you said: Gloriosa Daisy - Rudbeckia hirta (Asteraceae)! And you nailed the coneflowers too!


By Alex "UP-Goldwinger" (Alex) on Wednesday, July 21, 2021 - 08:13 am:

You made it UP, UC...enjoy, Dude! And thanks for
the sentiment, I wish I could have one more blast
on the Wing, as well.
