Lespedeza virginica, a legume.
The seeds are eaten by game birds, particularly Bobwhite Quail.
Close up so you can see the pea-like blooms.
This is the spot where I flushed a single pair of Bobwhite Quail, who quickly went to ground among the grasses and disappeared from sight.
Blue curls (Trichostema dichotomum) a mint, is common in Florida and eastern North America.
Blue Curls make a stunning show with yellow wildflowers.
Of course none of the pictures of them together turned out well.
You can see where the name Curls comes from.
Last year I paired Blue Curls and Bidens in the same post: Bidens and Blue Curls. This year I will not show Bidens again. We are spending much time picking Spanish Needles out of the dog's fur.
A welcome cool wind arrived with the onset of fall.
