Joe Pye Time in the Pond Garden

Joe Pye weed is blooming in the woods in PA.  Spotted this stand while hiking in Hills Creek State Park.
At home my Joe Pye weed is a bit taller.

It hangs over the pond which is buried in greenery.

Black eye-susans are also in bloom.

Here's a younger stand of Joe Pye weed, seeded from the parent plant.

Miscanthus grass and foxtail are sizable at this point in the summer.

Here's my study window and the photo following the wild scene I view.

A great change from this earlier this spring.
