Sunny Walk Around the Chestnut Hill Reservoir - Plants

Today I walked home on the opposite side of the reservoir than I usually do in order to see if I could find other types of plants that I have not yet recorded. It was a very sunny and warm day about 73 degrees Fahrenheit. I walked for about 45 minutes after class in the morning and the sun was blazing because there were no clouds. I ended up seeing a lot of the same plants as I did last time I walked around the reservoir but it was cool to name some of the plants I have always seen as a child but never knew the proper taxonomy. For example, the yellow tansy plant is one that I have seen in weeds at the park near my house in Illinois. I also see those bristly goldenrods but never stopped to think of their name until now. I even got to see a honey bee today and was able to catch a picture of him pollinating a dandelion. My favorite plant that I got to see today was the bright purple Chicory flower. It was a small flower all by itself and its bright color made me wonder if this beautiful purple color could have been adapted to attract pollinators?
