Pocket meadow in mid-August

Eupatorium perfoliatum (Common Boneset), Eutrochium purpureum (Joe-Pye), various Liatris species, Heliopolis, Parthenium integrefolium (Wild Quinine), and three different Vernonia species are welcoming pollinators of all sorts in the pocket meadow in mid-August

Not to mention the Brazilian sage and Rudbeckia triloba to the other side of the driveway, which are frequented by bees and hummingbirds.

Squash, tomatillo, and bean flowers attract a variety of bees, including the specialist squash bees.

Please share your thoughts. I enjoy hearing from fellow nature observers, as well as whomever else drops by.
