"I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived" Henry David Thoreau, Walden (1854)

Plant Camp Monday's

Crownbeard  Verbesina helianthoides 
This wildflower Crownbeard is new to my wildflower garden, It looks almost like the same set up I did a couple of week ago with the wildflower Partridge Pea.  I like black frames around yellow flowers and I have a lot yellow flowers. : )
Also called Wing-stem , Its in the Aster family--- Asteraceae
If you look at the bigger picture you will see a spider on the bottom flower.
Here's a link to more pictures, need to scroll down to get some really nice pictures.  The seed pod also called a Wing-stem will be a nice fall decoration.  Well be saving seeds on this one.  Crownbeard
Thank you all for stopping by, we still have hot weather this week and I can't wait tell fall.
Have a great week, I'll try and post more homestead happenings this week.  Take good care.
