A friend who just moved to Indianapolis posted these on Facebook, asking what they are. I think I should know them.... and it's driving me crazy, so I'm asking you now! Hilarious!

The second picture is one of the big goldenrods, Solidago altissima, Solidago gigantea or similar species.

Do you think the other one might be in the aster family?

I don't know, can't see the flowers clearly enough to tell for certain and the rest of the plant doesn't ring any bells. Shrug!

The leaves look similar, Sue, but the buds don't look like the ones in the Database. Confused

The first looks kind of like my Shasta Daisies that are getting ready to bloom. Could they be related?
