Not to be Confused …

… with the infamous ragweed that blooms in late summer, this ragwort (Packera species) is an early summer bloomer, and it can now be seen along our byways and in meadows and sunny spots in the forest. Its golden yellow color brighten our world. The butterflies that it attracts are also a welcome sight, darting from flower to flower gathering nectar.
