Today’s Flower a Day treat is a fluffy one, the seeds from the Canadian Goldenrod flowers. From a distance, in late summer the edges of paths and fields look as if a giant pillow fight has resulted in white fluff spread over the countryside. A closer look at these plants reveals within the white strands a complexity of tiny threads and dark stems and seeds that are like a little universe. So little is as simple as it appears from a distance. It’s always worth a closer look. Enlarging this photo in the gallery shows the detail better.
