    Default Plant ID

    The answers may be simple, but I'd like to know for sure the ID of a couple of plants that are currently blooming in my area.

    Some of the pictures didn't turn out quite as I hoped they would. I can always go pick a few stems to single them out if needed. I suspect that the 3rd set is goldenrod, but there's a ton of it around right now. I figured I wouldn't see this much so soon.

    Edit-I guess the next question is are they good bee plants?

    Looking at some pictures and comparing them to the plants I can tell you that star thistle, golden rod, and trefoil are definitely correct. Are they good bee plants? If so then I sure hope my bees have pollinated the hell out of them.
