Some long, long time readers may remember a post in which I explained that I planted mainly yellow flowers because that is a color that is a color this red-green color blind guy can see.
On Thompson Road south of Wonder Lake just into Bull Valley are a stand of tall yellow flowers on the west side.
I took the photo above last week.

Aren’t they called ox-eye daisies?

Seriously, I think these are Helianthus — of which there are many native to Illinois.
Sometimes called Ox-Eye or Swamp Sunflower or Sawtooth Sunflower.
