Free Cattail & Goldenrod Centerpiece


Not only do I love cats, I’ve always been fascinated by Cattails.

While my hubby and I were out and about today, I asked him to pull over.

Then I asked for his knife.

The funny thing is, he didn’t even question me.

 I had no idea what the yellow stuff was that I’ve been noticing all over the fields in Michigan,

but I knew I liked it.

I also knew it would go great with the Cattails we were about to cut.

Look at this guy…he’s into it as much as I am!

After we got home I got to work and put our collection together in a vase.

It turned out prettier than expected.

That’s why I had to share it.

I can’t believe it was free.

Now I know what the yellow stuff is.

It’s called Goldenrod.

Turns out it grows all over North America and has 50 different varieties.

I think the brown feather looking things are a type of grass.

We grabbed some of that for contrast.

3 Cattails topped it off perfectly.

Not bad for free!

    Very pretty! I did the same thing this year…goldenrod and cattails.

    The other plant looks like Phragmites australis. There is a native phragmite to Michigan, but that one may be the invasive species. So take a lot of it out of the ground. lol
