About JunkChuck

Native, Militant Westsylvanian (the first last best place), laborer, gardener, and literary hobbyist (if by literary you mean "hack"). I've had a bunch of different blogs, probably four, due to a recurring compulsion to start over. This incarnation owes to a desire to dredge up the best entries of the worst little book of hand-scrawled poems I could ever dream of writing, salvageable excerpts from fiction both in progress and long-abandoned. and a smattering of whatever the hell seems to fit at any particular moment. At first blush, I was here just to focus on old, terrible verse, but I reserve the right to include...anything. Maybe everything, certainly my love of pulp novels growing garlic, the Pittsburgh Steelers and howling at the moon--both figuratively and, on rare occasions, literally.

  1. Great pictures! The plant looks like Gooseneck Loosestrife. I find bee-watching really relaxing, (except when I’m trying to get a good picture of a busy bee).

      Good eye on the plants–we’ve got a substantial patch of it. Beautiful, but but aggressive; it requires constant vigilance. The bees swarm it, however, so it’s worth the effort–anything for the bees.

      • Aggressive — that’s why I haven’t introduced that one to my place. Already have enough pushy plants. 🙂

        Yes, we pondered grubbing it out, but since it seems to spread by runner, not seed–none of it coming up elsewhere in the gardens–we relegated it to a spot in front of a hackberry tree where a lot of stuff won’t grow, and kept it for the bees.

  2. Beautiful photos! Bees are so very important…all of nature is important…It pains me what is happening with Mother Earth. Your wonderful photos remind us of the gift of bees! Thank you!
