These are probably somebody’s nightmare invasive species plants, but when I saw these as I was driving down the snow-covered dirt road they caught my eye. The dried leaves catch the blowing snow in a bit of a scoop – they are really more like huge dried seed pods than leaves now that I think about it. I’m curious what they looked like in the summer with a flower of some sort.
It is fun to have rural roads to explore, and again I’m pleased to have been given the time to get out and take some photos on Sunday.
It was a grey day, but what would I expect in January in Montana?
Funny old plants, aren’t they?
