Fields turned yellow

Field of Broomweed and Goldenrod Flowering 4177

It’s not unusual in central Texas to see fields turned yellow in autumn with broomweed, Amphiachyris dracunculoides, and goldenrod, Solidago spp. This October 7th view of that combination is from Andrews Crossing at Windy Hills Rd. in Kyle, a fast-growing town south of Austin (and a childhood home of the writer Katherine Anne Porter).

You may recall that you had a close look at an individual broomweed flower head a few weeks ago.
