Meadow Monday: part four

Fleabane

Fleabane!

I don’t know what variety this is, but I’m pretty sure it is in the fleabane family.  Daisy fleabane is very common, and looks very similar but has slightly different petals.  I like these plants because they look like a bush of mini daisies.  I noticed it blooming a couple weeks ago, and now is the dominant blooming weed in the meadow.

Not a whole lot is going on out in the meadow right now, although we are starting to transition into fall.  I see more leaves changing color every day on my commute.  I love the color, and I’m trying to take it in and enjoy it as much as I can because I know once those trees are bare it is going to feel lonely.

We had another fox sighting!  This is the third sighting this year, and this little guy sure looks scrawny.

Even though I was very careful to move slowly and around the edge of the room so he couldn’t see me through the window, he must have heard something because he looked at me almost the moment I peeked around the window.  He was way too scared to stick around.  He looks so thin though, is that normal?  Also, I don’t even know if it’s a he.

Time to start doing some research on foxes!
