Late Summer Bike Path pix
Or, more pix of nonnative species

I kind of missed out on on the mid-summer flowers, since I was gone so much during June and July (or at least, that's how I felt.) So I missed such goodies as butterfly milkweed and lavender pale mondarda (plus of course a great deal of purple knapweed). Nor is this anything like a complete sample—my camera batteries died, so I didn't get the perennial sunflowers currently and abundantly in bloom. But I thought some of these pictures came out nicely, helped out by the rain the night before, adding its might to the dew.
