Pale Pink, Bright Yellow, and Paper Wasp

There seems to be a never-ending stream of new flowers in bloom at Northwood.  Of the several buds that have not 'popped' yet, a couple new ones crossed over to open blossoms in the last couple days.
The petals of this Pale Purple Coneflower look almost white.  There are a number of these with spindly petals just starting to spread out.  Look for these mature in the days to come.
There are a few Common Mullein opening their bright yellow blossoms right now.  Both of these plant varieties are known for medicinal properties.  There are also signs of a new colony of wasps starting up.
This is a paper wasp.  This one looks like it is consuming a caterpillar.  These wasps are considered beneficial because they keep down the caterpillar population.  They are generally non-aggressive though may be if  threatened.

Hope you enjoyed!
