An autumn delight that’s not brightly colored

Poverty Weed Turned Fluffy 8801

In central Texas we don’t have brightly colored fall foliage on a grand scale, and what little there is hasn’t appeared yet this year. One fall display we have had, though, is the soft one put on by poverty weed, Baccharis neglecta. You caught a glimpse of that in a recent post in which the tufts of an “old man’s beard” vine partly masked the not-yet-fully-fluffy ones of poverty weed, so here’s an unobstructed view of the latter fully developed on November 4th in the greenbelt adjacent to Great Hills Park.

If you’re interested in photography as a craft, points 18 and 19 in About My Techniques apply to this photograph.
