Riding Past the Last Blooming Thing of September

Groundsel Tree  (Baccharis halimifolia) near the Belt Parkway, Brooklyn

How sweet that the last thing I noticed blooming in September is a native. And the kind of thing you might find in the dunes or by the side of the road, two places I might go awandering to boot. I'm pretty sure I saw this species also known as Eastern Baccharis on Eastern Long Island in mid-September and noticed that it was budding, getting ready to flower soon.
