Summertime, and the meadows are purple . . .
Purple Loosestrife fills a meadow at Woods Hollow Nature Preserve in Ballston Spa.
Joe-Pye Weed stands tall along the Burl Trail that follows the Kayaderosseras Creek near Malta.
Purple Loosestrife shares an old barnyard above Saratoga Lake with many other flowers.
Most Horsemint plants are long past blooming, but at Wilton Wildlife Preserve this pretty purple-bracted one still held its purple-dotted yellow flowers.
