|dwarf rabbitbrush, Chrysothamnus nauseosus nauseosus|
One of my favorite shrubs is in full bloom right now. It says "fall is here!" to me like no other plant. I profiled rabbitbrush, also known as chamisa, here a few years ago. I'm heading out soon for a road trip through Wyoming and Montana, and I hope to see plenty of this cheery fellow along the way.
