Almost forgot this one that I hope isn't some kind of Galium/Cleavers, it's pretty close to the house where the dogs will be walking through it.

Thank you, Jay.

It does look like it could be Helenium flexuosum, even though the plants in my pic have such short petals & some don't have petals at all! I know things in nature can be variable.

I should go take some closer pics of the ray flowers. I think they have three lobes at the end.

The stems look right too.

Here's a closer look at the flower rays which pretty well confirms to me that you have it right, Jay. Thanks again.



I also ran across some pics I took in May
