Smartweed
probably Pennsylvania Smartweed....(Polygonum pensylvanicum)

One of around 30 varieties of smartweed that can be found growing in moist areas here and there. The seeds provide food for song birds and water foul. Some of the small hairs ---part of the flowers--- can be seen. The knot like flowers measure about 1/8 of an inch.

Many thank yous to Myrab, Annettep38 and Irishkate for their much appreciated User Awards.

A miniscule grocery for the wildlife.

What an interesting name! I hope no human tried snacking on these to up their IQ. If they did, it would probably explain their need of it.

Well shot, Jennnn, especially with the delightful bokeh!
