Flowers, fluff, and buggy stuff

daisy-like, but messy
We have lots of these deceptively cute but highly invasive little flowers popping up along the edges of the trails in certain parts of the arboretum.

dead flower heads make fluffy seeds
When the flowers die, they leave round seed heads that explode into tiny, fluffy, cottony seeds.

I saw a cute little stinkbug nymph on one dead flower head.

Tiny seed eaters
and lots of super-tiny seed bugs on another.
