I was pleased and blessed to come across this slope covered with attractive flowers while I was out for a walk.. What they are I do not know. While humans may call these plants ‘weeds’ the many honeybees I saw were quite busy harvesting pollen.
Late summer blooms.
A honeybee works a stand of New England Asters.
My sister-in-law has and tends an amazing flower garden. See for yourself.

These pretty flowers (I don’t know what they are, perhaps you do) grace the drainage ditch paralleling a country road.
Flowers bloom amidst tall grasses.
You would scarcely guess that an industrial facility is behind me.
I got down on hands and knees to look at this slope from a birds’ or critters’ perspective.
It’s good to look at things from a different perspective. It’s good to be reminded that one isn’t the only inhabitant of the town, province, country, continent, what have you.
Spring will be here soon and our seed order arrived today. Radishes, several different lettuce varieties, snow peas. Buckwheat to sow in the half of the vegetable garden that will lay fallow this year. Flowers including many natives to sow this fall, replacing a good good portion of the turfgrass in the front yard.
Bluebonnets (Lupinus texensis) carpet a meadow bordering Texas Highway 16 in the Texas Hill Country. Indian blanket (Gaillairdia pulchella) adds a pleasing contrast.
