Woodlands meadow

In the meadow area at the Woodlands Cemetery, just a bit west of the mansion, Indian grass (Sorghastrum nutans) and little bluestem (Schizachyrium scoparium) are the dominant plant species (and both are holding on to their fruit) towards the middle of the meadow, while at the margins of the meadow, purple top (Tridens flavus) [its fruits have fallen but its glumes remain] and fall panic grass (Panicum dichotomiflorum) dominate.  There’s a couple of patches of yellow foxtail (Setaria pumila – it’s leaf sheath margins aren’t ciliate) and nimblewill (Muhlenbergia schreberi) in there, too.

And – by the fence by the VA hospital, both Rubus phoeniculasius and Rubus laciniatus are growing next to each other.  Juncos were flying over by there, as well, this afternoon.
