Altus and I did our first fall safari across the Lavaca Bay Causeway at sundown to see how things would be shaping up if we had any number of monarchs along the Coastal Flyway in the next few days.
On the east side of the peninsula on the north end of causeway
there was a very nice growth of goldenrod this year, the most in about
five years, coming backing after coastal storms putting things under
salt water back then. There is a taller goldenrod that is blooming
nicely but the shorter coastal goldenrod may be blooming next week.
on the west side of the peninsula we found both kinds of goldenrod
and a return of good sized bushes of blue mist.
shows up on Google maps following highway 35 from Port Lavaca across
Lavaca Bay and just at the end of the causeway before Point Comfort.
