Greenbelters, have you noticed the serious blooming and buzzing action going on at Buddy Attack Park right now? It’s happening in the fabulous “Wildflower Area and Pollinator Garden, which is nicely sited between the open lawn and the woodland picnic area. It’s high-visibility, but protected by simple post-and-rope barrier and the signage.
Thank you, City of Greenbelt!!
But here’s my question for wildflower gardeners, or anyone else. What ARE these lovely plants? Above, the yellow seems to be Coreopsis (also known by the inelegant common name Tickweed). Is the flat white blossom Queen Anne’s Lace? It came to this country from England SO long ago, it’s considered a near-native by now.
The white flowers above may be Fleabane, and I spot some lavender clover blooms far right and left in the shot.
I love the park when it’s quiet and almost no one is there, but maybe even more when it’s filled with people eating, playing, or just being together outdoors.
