Wordless Wednesday: On the Prairie – Joe Pye Weed

Joe Pye Weed

Almost wordless: A favorite of butterflies and bees, this Joe Pye Weed is growing by the pond near my house. And just who was Joe Pye that he has all these wildflowers named for him? Turns out no one really knows for sure, his legend is shrouded in mystery.

    I have always loved Joe Pye Weed! The bees love it too.

    When I was a kid, we had lots of Joe Pye Weed along the side of the barn and the butterflies came in droves.

    I’ve never heard of Joe Pye weed. I wonder if it grows in this part of the country? It’s gorgeous!
