First of all the skeeters are horrid, all the rain we had and the water standing in the fields have bred skeeters big as birds…well not quite but when you step outside they are in your eyes, ears, nose and if you open it your mouth.
Canada Goldenrod or Solidago canadensis a native plant is the yellow and Spotted Knapweed or Centaurea stobe spp. micranthus a Noxious Weed is the purple. The County/Townships almost had this noxious weed under control a few years ago and now it has resurfaced.
The Liatris is blooming in the wild gardens, this particular one is Liatris spicata or Gayfeather and I planted it long ago. It blooms from the top down.
We have more purple but the skeeters were eating me alive. I hope we get gale force winds tomorrow so some of the skeeters impale themselves on trees.
I know it is wrong to pray for a frost…but I am tempted.
