Blazing Star close up.

Northern Blazing Star, Kennebunk Plains, Maine

This is a close-up of Northern Blazing Star from the Kennebunk Plains in West Kennebunk Maine. If you read yesterday’s post you know that the Blazing Star is endangered in most of New England, including Maine. The Plains host one of the last viable populations in the state…and this year the plants are much more sparce than usual. Next year will have a story to tell. Note that this is actually a flower head…with many tiny flowers.
