Gift of the Goldenrod

DSC_2317a

Took a quick walk today in the unseasonably warm weather to Queeny County Park in the suburbs west of St. Louis.  In the small restored prairie, most of the growing season’s activity was done…shades of brown, dull greens, and faded reds mark the latter days of autumn.  But late-blooming plants like Goldenrod (Solidago spp.) have just recently gone to seed.  The result, in the falling fall sun, is this glowing plumage.
