Jewelweed is actually an annual wildflower, which is so strange to me. It replants itself every year through seed. Native Americans used it as a cure all, but it is mostly known for soothing poison ivy. It’s often found growing near poison ivy. The leaves are water resistant and droplets of water bead and shine in the sun giving the plant it’s name.

Good luck for me, bad news for the local aphids.

This Grass Carp has to be 2 or 3 feet long. It looks like a shark in the pond. Getting a picture of it is like photographing big foot.
