^^ I think there's a shorter species of Liatris that I've seen a few times in the last few days. More of a procumbent lawn variety.

It does that. And...

It gets brighter later as well.

I don't know of a procumbent liatris, but that doesn't mean much. I used to know the species a long time ago when working on a native prairie survey in Illinois.

A liatris will get leggy if it doesn't have sun. And some tall flowers, when mowed, still flower in the grass.

Can you send a picture?

No, it used to worry me because I always heard they could get caught in your hair.Old wives tale.Anything that can eat a mosquito in the air at a high speed at night isn’t likely to bump into my big head.

The Jehovah's Witnesses have been replaced by college students trying to sell coupon booklets.

The women on the beach have switched from bikinis to one-piece bathing suits.

A scattering of Canada Geese beginning to head south — two one day, four another. No big vees yet.
