Mullein flowers

Diana Foster

As summer unfolds (Happy Summer Solstice a few days late), so do the heat loving flowers.  Thanks to Diana Foster for sharing this image of a mullein flower stalk in one of the ICNA fields.  Not a native, mullein thrives in those dry, poor soil areas where not much else does.   I have always loved the vibrant insect world that travels in and out of it's yellow flowers--it feels a bit to me like watching the insect version of Grand Central Station.
