When Donna MacIntosh stepped out into her backyard in Baraga recently, she discovered some interesting transformations in the flowers and plants that had been around during the warmer months. Everything this time of year, turns from green or colorful, to a fall shade of brown, like the "weeds" in Donna's photos. I cannot identify any of them, but they all have some unique characteristics which make them quite interesting. Especially the plant in the last two photos, it almost looks like it's alive with many legged bugs! So, if you can put a name to any of these, let us know...

The last two photos appear to be of "Yarrow," a plant that is somewhat similar to and often confused with Queen Annne's Lace.

They definitely have some kind of attraction of their own. Very different!

In the first photo, the plant in the foreground looks like Tansy.

I love these pictures, Donna!

Gee those pics are just my kind of "art"! They all are familiar but was't sure of them. Yes tansy and yarrow are very possible. This is the stuff that one's eye sees with a bit of art experience and/or a good eye.
There is so much beauty in our world that we just don't really "see" day to day. Thanks a million and Donna and Mary!

I listented to the last part of todays game here in Monroe county on WMPL and the Lakes lost to Crystal Falls 14 - 8

The top one is Goldenrod, no clue on the next one, and the last two are what I would have called wild Queen Anne's Lace! Cool stuff...Thanks!

I think the top one is Tansy and bottom two are Queen Anne's Lace.
Queen Anne's Lace I think curls up like that and yarrow stays
flatter. The second looks domestic but can't guess what it is. I think
the fall dry flowers are great.
