Friday Afternoon Garden Club 9.17.2010

goldenrod, switch grass, and junipers in the Sand Hills of Nebraska
It’s FAC time in The Art Garden!  Grab your favorite beverage and pull up a chair.  You didn’t really want to work this afternoon anyway, did you?  Leave a comment to join the garden party.
Today’s topic:
I just returned from a quick trip to Nebraska. I loved seeing the native stands of goldenrod, Solidago canadensis, in bloom and the soft colors of the many grasses.  What are the outstanding native plants blooming in your region right now?

Yes, this is a great time of year for wildflowers almost anywhere. Loved your post about the Great Dismal Swamp (stunning photos, as always!) ---thanks for sharing the link.
