These lovely flowers bloom along the bike trails this time of year. The plants are sometimes 6 feet tall.
These flowers are blooming along the bike paths. It must be August.
I can’t look at these without thinking of my mother. She gave me some and in my yard, they grow like weeds. She didn’t like it when I pulled them out of my hostas. I do let them grow but I try to keep them under control.
It was a little breezy last night. The flowers looked like they were dancing.
They grow in clumps in swampy areas. They are invasive species that should be destroyed.
