Lesser Stitchwort was nothing less that a MF to identify via my field guides and internet botany resources. The problem being that geographically, there can be slight variations in structure, sometimes (and in this case) resulting in frustrating page turning in "A Field Guide to Wildflowers" by Roger Tory Peterson and Margaret McKenny (the very best of the field guides for wildflowers that I have used since the 70's). I will sometimes use "Michigan Wildflowers" by Harry C. Lund, but for the most part, find it lacking in depth and somewhat a generalist or beginner's guide. Stellaria graminia flowers are less than 1/4 inch wide, so the entire plant appears almost microscopic from more than a foot away. From the field guide description and my experience here at the farm, it appears to like grassy fields. It grows well on my Eastern fence line in an unmowed apple orchard. Very diminutive and frail looking.
Gave Benny a shower with me tonight and as is always the case following his toweling off and breaking free, it was time for his traditional post-bath psychotic break (entailing running at full speed to knock the cushions and pillows off all couches, beds, etc.). Back to having a clean partner who likes to spend as much time in his half acre of fenced in territory as possible (sans rain or sub zero temperatures), keeping his arch enemies, the pine squirrels and chipmunks in check.
