It’s the yellow time of year so far with lots of Goldenrod, Stickweed, and the Golden Rain Trees blooming. The Golden Rain Trees won’t be blooming much longer and are already putting on their little chinese lantern looking seed pods.
The 3 clovers continue to bloom and we are still seeing quite a bit of smartweed. Vitex are still blooming as well.
This month we start to see asters — both white and purple — that are great nectar sources for the bees. A plant that looks a lot like purple aster is the ironweed like the picture above. Along the highways, I’m seeing a lot of Virgin’s Bower blooming as well.
