A closer look at goldenrod
As the title says, here’s a closer look at goldenrod, Solidago spp. Don’t the flowers look happy?
This October 7th view is once again from Andrews Crossing at Windy Hills Rd. in Kyle, a fast-growing suburb south of Austin. The little pink flowers in the background are prairie agalinis.
Over the three weeks since I took this picture many of the goldenrod plants in central Texas have gradually been fading, with a few already having gone to seed and turning fluffy.
