December Wildflowers at Kirby!

December Wildflowers at Kirby! I did not expect to see anything in bloom when I visited this past weekend. I was really lucky to spot just a few flowering heads of Broom Snakeweed, refusing to give in to winter dormancy. These Snakeweeds must surely be about the only plants blooming now at Kirby. Plants go to the trouble to produce flowers in order to attract pollinators and I wonder if any insects have visited these flowers? Regardless, these yellow December blooms are a reminder that the natural world is alive and active even as we approach the first day of winter. #DoctorBot #LakeKirby
