Out In Left Field

I just hope those aren’t squirrel eating plants!

There’s a section of the local park out behind the left field fence of the main softball diamond that routinely floods when it rains, and the resulting swamp can linger for days or even weeks.  When I last visited the park in May, this whole area was covered in these tall yellow…. well, I like to call any kind of flowering plants “flowers,” but I’d assume they’re probably some kind of weed.  There was a large area of them, with a number of squirrels scattering around…. and I was hoping to get a picture of one of them navigating the forest, but this was the best I could do.  If any of my amateur botanists want to take a stab at what kind of plants those are, I’d be happy to find out!

And let’s not forget this week’s Saturday Squirrel on the tree there, who ties the whole picture together.  Perhaps trying to get the heck away because he has allergies…

Have a great weekend everyone!

  1. Hope the squirrel finds a used (ewwwww) kleenex around to help with his allergies – that yellow weed (oops – I mean flower) could be any number of things but someone who is more of a plant expert than I am can probably zero in on it. You have a good weekend too now that you’re out of the slammer!


  2. I can’t tell what kind of plant that is but it’s a cute squirrel picture!

  3. it’s helpful to remember weeds are perennials that you didn’t buy at the garden center. 😂

    They may be weeds, but they make a pretty squirrel backdrop.

    He’s a swampland squirrel. He’s well used to weird yellow flowering swamp weeds.

    I’m not sure what it is but definitely not a Venus Squirrel Trap!

    The only guess I have is St. John’s Wort. But I think that’s usually a bit leafier and flowers in June. Whatever it is, it makes a good backdrop for Mr. Squirrel to pose in front of!
