09.02.07 WINGSTEM

A very tall roadside "weed," wingstem, Verbesina alternifolia, is now blooming profusely adding a rich yellow to the meadows. Here you can see it growing alongside iron weed and joe-pye weed. It gets its name from the "wings" you can see growing along its stem.

My apologies to all my readers who have visited my inactive blog the last two weeks while I have been away from my computer. I kept a number of journal entries during this time and have entered them all today. Thanks for checking in!
