Beautiful Billy. Teasel must be popular with the bird with those big seed heads.

Purple loosestrife is a big problem here. It's invasive and readily self-sows, so many states have banned it. We see it on the sides of roads all the time. Too bad it's so pretty!

Sunflowers never survive in my yard - the critters eat all the seeds, so planting them never works. lol
