Autumn Flowers (and Weeds)

Flowers and other plants look a lot different in the autumn than they do earlier.  I found this small white aster at the edge of a trail on our property.

I think this one is field thistle–it is a thistle of some kind for sure.

Velvet-leaf is kind of an ugly weed that grows in bare soil that is not too fertile.  Its seed-head, however, has kind of an interesting look.

    indeed, the seed pods can be as intriguing as the flowers that left them.
