These were flowers that popped up on the edge of my yard where I had quit mowing so more milkweed plants could grow. I did see bees on them, but the flowers really never got beyond what they are in the picture. So they are not real showy or brillant. But there were many of them.

Anyone have a clue?

Bur Marigolds! Also called common Beggarticks. Take a stroll through the field this fall and then spend the next hour plucking what we used to call "stick-tights" out of your socks.

I'm so proud of myself... I just learned these this year. These are a fascinating flower because they have very tiny or no petals. And they do tend to just appear overnight. They popped up here around mid-September.
