August wildflowers and grasses

Took a walk and a bunch of photos yesterday. Lots of flowers and the grasses are coming on strong. Still to post, insects and mushrooms, but not as many of each.

The big bluestem in the prairie remnant is well over 9 feet tall, even in the second summer of drought. While we have lots of cup plants (not pictured), the compass plants are starting to show up along the edges of the woods.

We welcome any corrections to the names of these plants – still learning!
