1026 goldenrod field
The goldenrods are beginning to bloom - a sure sign that summer is well underway. These are the yellow-flowered plants of roadsides, old fields, woods, and wetlands that bloom in the late summer. These are sometimes hard to tell apart, but I think that I have at least 5 native goldenrod species in my front yard on Garland Road; The two species that I am sure about are Gray Goldenrod and Showy Goldenrod (not yet blooming). I also think I have Sharp-leaved Goldenrod? I am still working on identifying the rest...
