There was lots of pumpkins and squash at the Farmer’s market last weekend. Soon it will be time for snow and produce grown in warmer climates.
Sunflowers look lovely in the sun.
I guess it looks more purple than blue which means it is probably Hoary Vervain but that sounds more like a disease than a plant. This seems like an appropriate picture for the last day of August.
Nothing attracts butterflies like the Northern Plains Blazing Star plant. The flowers in the background are rag weed.
The goldenrod in blooming and the butterflies and bees are enjoying it. I just like to look at the flowers but I think they must be tasty because they do attract a lot of attention.
Last spring we had house wrens in the bird house by the back door. They are fun to watch and we enjoy their song. This time of year (not photographed) we have a bees nest by the back porch and even though we do watch them we don’t enjoy it.
