Flower Friday: Camphorweed Heterotheca subaxillaris #FlowerFriday #Camphorweed #Flowers

I discovered Flower Friday while visiting Lorilin@Bugbugbooks and decided to begin sharing some flower pictures from our gardens along with some information about them. Please check out Lorilin’s blog if you haven’t already for book reviews and more!

Camphorweed (Heterotheca subaxillaris)

I thought twice about sharing these because they aren’t spectacular, but I do find beauty in them.

The daisy-like flowers remind me of dandelions and daisy fleabane. They’re quite lovely actually and the bees love them.

Volunteer Sunflower

In 2019 we had three volunteer sunflowers show up; two I shared last week. Here’s the third, which appears to be a lemon queen.

This volunteer sunflower is one of the tallest sunflowers we’ve ever had, and it’s the healthiest. It stands alone out in our pasture about fifteen feet away from the one I shared last week.
