Spiny Goldenweed (Xanthisma spinulosum)

The species I am observing is a flower. I notice that this flower resembles a sunflower. The petals resemble a sunflowers petals but this plant is much smaller and has less petals. Also the middle of this flower is yellow and fluffy. The middle of the plant reminds me of fluffed up cotton. I notice the branch is green and it has what seems to be white webs. I notice the leaves are a bit spikey and they don't look like normal leaves on a flower, they are stiff. I wonder if this plant can be found anywhere else in the world. The picture was taken on November 8, 2020 at 11:45 AM. The location is Grant Tucson, AZ.

Mexican Marigold (Tagetes erecta)

The species I am observing is a flower. I notice this flower has big fluffy orange petals. The petals looks a bit ruffled. I notice that the petals form a round surface. The color of the petals are very eye-catching because of the unique bright color of orange. I notice there are 5 of the same flower, each one is the same shade of orange and each has flowy petals. I wonder how this flower helps then environment around it. I notice its surroundings are all green aside from the separate purple grayish plant next to it. I wonder if bee's can feed off this flower. I wonder why this flower smells so unique. It reminds me of a Vermilion Flycatcher because they both have a beautiful shade of orange. They both remind me of a sunsets.

The color of the petals are a light lavender or blue, i notice that at the end of the petals the light lavender/blue starts to fade into a tinted white. The anthers on the flower are white and the filaments on the flower are the same light lavender/blue. I notice that it's branch looks a bit pokey, it has white fluff on it. The flower next to it that hasn't bloomed is a light purple and lavender. I wonder if this flower blooms during spring? I notice that the leaves surrounding this flower are shaped a bit like Christmas season leaves, they are green and red. I notice the branch of the flower is light red almost pink. I wonder why the leaves are red and green? I wonder why the branch has small white pokeys on it? This flower reminds me of a beautiful painting of the night sky.

Fragrant Evening Primrose (Oenothera cespitosa)

Description: The species I'm observing/describing is a flower. I notice there aren't many petals on this flower- it only consists of 4 petals and the petals have a very loose structure. I notice the petals are almost translucent. The color of the petals are light pink. The colors of the Anthers are light yellow with very little spots of dark yellow. I notice the very middle of the plant is light green and the color of the filaments are even lighter than the middle of plant. I notice there is another plant next to it- it looks to be the same species, just a shade darker, I wonder if it's the same exact species. There is also a purple blur on the bottom left corner of the picture, I wonder if it is another flower. I notice most of the surroundings are green. I wonder what season the flower is most likely to bloom. This flower reminds me of a soft light smoothie on a summer day because of the light colors and the environment surrounding the flower, it seems peaceful.

Observing Asters and Allies

Description: The color of the petals on this flower is a light lavender with a mixture of white. The shape of the petals resembles a lanceolate shape- long, and not to thick. In the middle of the plant there's a circle shape and a mixture of orange and yellow, on the outside of the circle orange is surrounding the yellow.

I noticed that there is about 7 little purple flowers that haven't bloomed yet surrounding the same flower that has already bloomed. I also notice that the flowers are surrounded by green leaves and they are in dark brown soil/dirt. I wonder what the weather is and why only one flower has bloomed. I notice that there is a bug on the middle of the flower- it looks like a bee. I wonder what kind of bug is on the flower. This reminds me of when I was taking a walk on a mountain with my family and I saw a single white flower surrounded by green leaves.

Location of the plant: Riviere-des-Prairies—Pointe-aux-Trembles, Montreal, QC, Canada
Date when the picture of the plant was taken: September 23, 2020 · 3:16 PM EDT
