5 Sept., 2009 -- Dandelion on steroids

Dandelion. But three feet tall? Living in the weed patch at the driveway entrance. Has leaves with spiney teeth, a nice strong milkweed stem, and flowers all over the stems. Maybe the ancestor to our cultivated dandelions? The Ozark Wildflower book calls it False Dandelion, Krigia biflora Blake. Looks real to me...

Supper time. Black and Yellow Argiope

At least one airplane in today for the long holiday, species - Grumman.

There. We've had our biology lesson for today.

The moon tonight is still looking full, but there are a lot of thin clouds and moisture. Looks like a Halloween moon... where's the lady on the broom?
