Crow’s Nest: Blooms continue

September 7, 2014

It has been our best year in memory for the blooms of Joe-Pye weed, New York ironweed, and cardinal flower. The goldenrod has started blooming, joining the white-flowered boneset. Ragweed was a little late but now is just past peak (my allergies keep me informed).

It also seems to be a good year to see monarch butterflies here at Crow’s Nest, at least better than the recent past.
