Naturalized flowers and weeds
The yard down the street is neglected now that the house stands empty. Once there were flower beds lovingly tended by an elderly man; now some of the flowers have escaped to naturalize in the yard. The yellow one is coreopsis; I'm not sure what the purple one is.
Before church, this weed caught my eye. Very sassy-looking at the edge of the parking lot. I did a very quick sketch of it, knowing my husband was going to mow the area after church. A Kansas field guide calls it Goat's Beard.
