Mother Nature’s garden surprises

These beautiful weeds covered much of my prairie this spring and summer.

 

Monarda (bee balm) and ox-eye daisies

   

“Raspberry wine” monarda: I had never seen it in this color before. It was striking!

 

Ox-eye daisies, black-eyed Susans, and monarda

 

Milkweed: favorite of the monarch butterflies

I even found a few morels in my yard…where an apple tree had once lived.
