Goldenrod Turned Fluffy by Pond 1403

Close to the bushy bluestem that you saw last time at one of the ponds next to the Costco in Cedar Park on December 29th, I was also intrigued by the pale yet stately remains of some goldenrod (Solidago spp.).

Call me crazy, but these more-than-three goldenrod plants reminded me of the three Graces in Botticelli’s painting “La Primavera.” And now you can tell that the flight of fancy has landed when I mundanely point out a few seed heads of bushy bluestem beyond the goldenrod in the lower right corner of the photograph.
