So, a few weeks ago I wrote a post entitled "Roadside Attraction".   It was an optimistic look at what I let go to seed in the ditch by my road.....a busy road maintained by NCDOT.  One of their maintenance chores is to cut down the weeds that may be crowding culverts. *Sigh*.... and the cutleaf coneflower was due to bloom any week now. So now, a little more roadside runoff will go unfiltered into the watershed.
Maybe next year I will put up a homemade "no mow" sign and see if that deters them.

well, I guess the roots will still filter since these perennials are not dead "yet" but...they sure as hell don't look pretty anymore-to me anyway.
