Native Golden Rod, its fun to see the fall weed patch in bloom.
I think I grow more weeds in my garden, than tame flowers :))
I sure enjoy a beautiful weed, and the native plants grow really well, without care.

    Can’t go wrong with this beautiful plant, Carolyn. Ours is past it, but recent warm days have brought out a few straggling flowers; same with the pink phlox that accompanies it in our ‘weed’ garden! So pretty!
