Blossoming Rabbitbrush

The old giving way to the new is a universal truth that is very evident in the campground today here at Collier Memorial State Park.  The volunteer hosts that have been camped to the left of us pulled out this morning, and their replacements are due this afternoon.  The volunteer host on our right will be leaving tomorrow morning with their replacement due in that afternoon. I have been struck with how the new fills the void of the old in the plant world too.  The bright red berries of the wild WaxCurrant which have added so much color for the past month or so are completely gone, but now adding fresh color are the bright yellow blossoms of the Rabbitbrush which has waited until August for its turn to blossom.
