Walking down a street with my thoughts lost in the news-via-earbuds, I surfaced enough to realize bobbing gold-yellow blobs down both sides of the street, not evenly spaced, but…present. So, I focused. And realized they were flags marking underground utilities. Except this one.
Then, I kept my eyes open, and saw a blooming Prunus spp., cherry or plum, probably.
And this ornamental with so many buds right along the leaf bases. Don’t know what this is at all.
