The temperatures dove into the low teens last night, and I had to be cautious of numerous icy patches along the highway this morning. I found myself feeling reminiscent of summer wildflowers, and thought maybe you would be too.
So – here’s a photo of a wildflower, taken on August 30, 2014 along the Central Platte River in Nebraska. Can you name it? I’ll give you a couple hints in the comments section below, and then after someone guesses correctly (and they will – a number of botanists follow this blog) I’ll confirm their answer in the comments section as well.
