Artichoke, Anyone?

I always look forward to seeing this tall, yellow border growing around the perimeter of all the wooded areas on my rural Missouri land … the Jerusalem Artichoke (Helianthus tuberosus). This wildflower becomes a prominent feature of my rural landscape every summer. So refreshing to look out and see the “sea of yellow”. Here are a few images I captured last evening:

And this next one appears to be trying to hide from my camera lens:
