My friend P wrote that when I posted a picture of purple-headed sneezeweed (Helenium flexuosum) on social media. I included a few pictures in my August 7 post here, but want to share a few more. It’s such a photogenic flower! That’s a pearl crescent (Phyciodes tharos) sitting on the flower head.
Here are a few more pictures from my August ramblings on the banks of the Potomac.
