Spiky, sticky, and yellow

 Gumweed. Just gumweed, closing down at the end of a warm day.

Grindelia stricta. Dunes, Oyster Bay. The white blobs are latex, the gum that gives the plant its name; very sticky!


Grindelia, hierba de goma; una planta muy pegajosa, esta creciendo en las dunas cerca de la playa en Oyster Bay. Los botones producen latex, que le da su nombre "hierba de goma".

I'm having to moderate all comments because Blogger seems to have a problem notifying me. Sorry about that. I will review them several times daily, though, until this issue is fixed.

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
