Walking through a wildflower garden

Fall is here and so are the fall wildflowers.  Here’s a few I took photos of just along the driveway from the house to the mailbox.

Wild touch-me-nots, blue mini daisies and more.

I love these but don't know what they're called and they remind me of liatris, I think??

They're not bluebells but the bloom is somewhat shaped like them.

Shaped much like blackeyed susans but different.

These aren't as blue as they normally are and our neighbor has a field full of them.  When the sun hits the field in mid-afternoon the entire field looks blue.

These little orange jewels bloom and then have a pod that when touched pops open.  The driveway is full of the huge plants this summer/fall.

Tons and tons of bloom and full of teeny tiny  bumblebees.

Queen Anne's lace is huge this year and maybe due to all the rain we received spring and summer.

I don't know what this is but most of it is white with yellow centers like a daisy but much smaller and abundance of bloom.  I've also found the same plant but blue with orange centers.

Once the weather cools a little and I can get out in the sun there will be an abundance of wildflower and nature photo ops.

Enjoy the summer as long as you can because that cold weather is just around the corner.  How do I know??  My hummingbirds have left!  😦
