Spring 2013: Henbit in a crannied freestone masonry wall

2013-04-07 - Fortune Street Columbia, KY - Photo By Pen. Henbit is the bane of lawn homogenists. We watch for each spring and rather like its effect, especially on the stunning lawn we've noticed in the 800 block of Burkesville Street, near the Foster Graves and Bill Wheat's 2nd Christian Church. According to Wikipedia, the plant is edible, but we'll want many second opinions before eating any. This henbit (Lamium amplexicaule) was a bit special. It was poetically pretty, and nice to see from a wall which is the maternity ward for garter snakes. Every spring they come to Town Creek banks by the hundreds. We're looking into catching them, putting them in a barrel, and paying off the mortgage with $2 a pet snake sales. Might go well at the Farmer's Market on the Square. Just need to know where to get a license. - ED
