The black-eyed susans are doing very well. (Doh! How did that knotweed get in there??)

I don't know what this grass is, but it's a lovely colour.

Here's a Question Mark butterfly. (Cheating a bit -- this was almost at Pottery Road, not really on the Beechwood site.)

Continuing the orange theme, I noticed this flower and learned that it's spotted jewelweed. Apparently it likes to grow in places that also have poison ivy, and the sap in it can be used to treat the itchy rash. I've seen poison ivy growing along the path recently, but I do hope I won't need to test this new information.
