bouncing bet, Saponaria officinalis

Bouncing bet is another common roadside flower. While you leave no song unsung, no wine untasted, watch for this too. It will help fill your days with endless wonder. Soon it has spent the summer by your roadside, but be gone when autumn came. Fantine will fade, but Cosette will be back for other seasons. And some songs just won't leave your head. Bet will bounce from your roadside to fields and roadsides across the country (except AK and HI). Lenawee Co MI, 9/11/13.
