Not really hidden, the diminutive blooms of the Possumhaw Holly, Ilex decidua, must be looked for, found out, and paid attention to. Tiny buds come first,
…before life-giving flowers open to a remarkable variety of insects.
There were few insects when I took this shot, as it’s been gloppy and drippy around here, but they’ll show up: fluttering, crawling, consuming.
The blooms are not unseen for them.
I’m glad to join in today with Anna’s Flutter and Hum and her wonderful Wednesday Vignette. Please pop over for garden, nature, and other musings.
