Wildflowers

I love to walk around North Pond here in Chicago and notice the asters as September stretches into October. They make me think of my mom . . . .









Any day that starts with morning glories on Point Alanna is a good day!









When I first heard about the "cottonwood pulling" task, I thought, "Hah! That'll never be me!"








Midwesterner dissent is like goldenrod. This is what it looks like when you try to cut down the goldenrod to make room for other flowers.
