Another thing I found on August 8th at the pond adjacent to Naruna Dr. in northeast Austin was some marsh fleabane, Pluchea odorata. Yes, this species of plant does have an odor, which some people find fragrant and others unpleasant. Nose aside, your eyes can enjoy the ripe buds at the left and the opening flowers at the right (especially if you click to enlarge the image).
