Mostly Overcast Sunday

Even though it was mostly an overcast today, I still had bright spots in my day! 🙂

Starting with a beauty on our early morning walk!
Most of the Narrow-leaf Gayfeather (Liatris punctata var mucronata) and the Flat-topped Goldenrod (Solidago nitida) are preparing their seed production!
Indeed, most of my Fall Asters (Symphyotrichum ericoides) are just hitting their peak. However some are already starting to fade with the curled under petals like this one.

Multiple stages of the Narrow-leaf Gayfeather (Liatris punctata var mucronata).
On one of the Gayfeather that still had some purple flowers, I spotted a Seed Bug (Melacoryphus lateralis). And guess what Seed Bugs eat? Seeds of course. LOL

It was very cooperative and allowed for a side view.
Then for fun a down shot. LOL
Then another of the Arkansas Yucca. LOL

Twas a nice Sunday!

  1. Was the skunk a silverback/solid white back? love all the white in the tail too. A few years ago we had a male skunk in almost all white that we think was father of our skunk family under the house. They had a variety of white markings beyond the normal 2 stripes striped skunk. We haven’t seen skunks at all this year.

    1. I couldn’t see it well enough to say if it had a totally white back. Sorry you are missing out on the skunks this year. They are just so pretty.

    1. Our dog felt the same way about the safe distance. Fortunately after getting sprayed a half dozen times , she always made a wide berth around them. 😂
