Just in case you thought your eyes were playing tricks on you, it really is Kingdom Arrows writing a post in the MIDDLE OF THE MONTH.
it has not happened in seasons....
and since seasonal change is what I am writing about here, it is thematic!
We began Barb's Autumn Outdoor Challenge and we are SO EXCITED! Fall is our fav time around here, so it was easy to get started again.
We chose to study weeds. I emailed and Facebooked every local person I knew trying to find some milkweed to study, but it was a no go. Apparently, milkweed is not really a native plant here in the Tennessee River Valley. So we chose to do a weed study in our yard. One thing I found about weeds, is that out here in the country, we call them FLOWERS.
We idenitfied something called Tickweed Sunflowers. They are small compared to a real sunflower, but are very happy flowers. They are called Tickweed, since in the middle the tips of the stamins look like little seed ticks all over them.
