Good day everyone! Today’s flower to help cheer your morning (or evening) is a wild one, a member of the Aster family. At first glance it doesn’t seem to be very interesting, but when you look closely it has an intricate tiny beauty in each little flower. It is known as Grass leaved Goldenrod or Goldentops, grows around us profusely and its nectar is a favourite of monarch butterflies. I love the tiny golden florettes that sit above those spiky leaves. This was photographed along the edge of the path that runs beside a wood next to us. The Flower a Day Gallery as it is up to now is below. Each day a new photo will be added.
