In August, many wildflowers begin to bloom in the Upper Midwest. Bees, wasps, moths and butterflies visit them for nectar and pollen. While in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, last weekend, we walked along Lake Michigan to enjoy the warm sun, gentle breeze and flowers both native and non-native that grace the shoreline. Among the blooms were chicory, Queen Anne’s lace, everlasting pea, goldenrod, sweet clover, gray-headed coneflower, bouncing Bet, red clover, Black-eyed Susan, monarda and lesser burdock. (If you look closely, you’ll spot a few pollinators, too.)
Beth, I missed this when you posted it, (I’m just a tiny bit behind on my email) but came across it tonight. What beautiful images, especially on a cool fall evening. Thank you.
Thank you, Linda. I hope that you have enjoyed the beauty of your woods and lake during early autumn! Thanks for reading my blog.
