Goldenrod and Bushy Bluestem Turned Fluffy by Pond 3834

Click for greater clarity.

By December 2nd at the Riata Trace Pond in northwest Austin the fall had made itself firmly felt and a couple of unrelated plants there, one a grass and the other a wildflower, had turned fluffy together. The two tallest stalks you see in today’s view are goldenrod, Solidago altissima, while most of the other and more numerous ones are bushy bluestem, Andropogon glomeratus. All the bright spots in the upper part of the photograph are Sparkles sunshinei.
