Day 854

The Disosway House

May 2nd, 2014



Located at the eastern end of Disosway Place. Built around 1800?

Just around the corner on Delafield Avenue is an even older house that I somehow didn't notice, probably because of either inattention or high hedges. It's known as the Scott-Edwards House, and it dates back to about 1730. Check it out in Street View.

Spring beauty

May 2nd, 2014



From the NY Times:

At my feet, a blush of pale pink petals with magenta-colored stripes: spring beauty, Claytonia virginica. Bright yellow streaks at the base of the petals hint at more artful intentions – luring the love of a bee. These markings guide insects inside toward the nectar.

On the first day they open, spring beauty’s flowers are in male phase, releasing pollen from pink anthers. The next day, these bend backward and the stigma, the female part, emerges to collect pollen. Each individual flower may last as long as a week.
