Jewelweed Thriving at the Celery Farm

Next time you head down Parnell's Path, check out the Jewelweed growing amid the Common Phragmites.

The phrags are a nasty invasive but they do protect the Jewelweed from the ravages of the voracious deer.

The "poppers" are popping now, so check 'em out and touch a pod or two -- even if the plant is sometimes called a Touch-me-not.

Hummingbirds love it. And it's good for Poison Ivy, too.  Is there a cooler plant in the Celery Farm?
