The purple asters greeted us as we left our car to begin
our first September walk on this trail.
Goldenrod and thistle were in bloom
and look at the busy bees -- above and below!
Not sure what THESE are....
but it was hard not to recognize these dandelion!
They grew to great heights - as tall as 3'!
Except for the burrs that clung to my clothes
and getting a bit lost on the trail,
it was a FINE afternoon.
I look forward to walking many more nature preserve trails this month.
