Flowers part three

Standard

The pink flowered shrub which we have in our garden and also grows along the trail is spirea.  Have seen creeping bellflower, touch-me-not, pussy toes, possibly purple loosestrife (another bad plant) although its leaves seem different, various goldenrods, and both yellow and white sweet clover are blooming.  Cattails are forming their large brown seed heads. Last year thoughtless people took away, “harvested”, all the cattail heads.  There is a tall yellow-flowered plant of the Queen Anne’s Lace family and I think it is wild parsnip, which has a reputation for being toxic, burning the skin when touched and leading to photosensitivity, like giant hogweed.  Not going to touch it to find out!  It’s a jungle out there!
