Any East Baton Rouge wildflowers blooming

I've been out of state on business, unfortunately in Arizona, this month.

Has anyone noticed any wildflower species blooming in East Baton Rouge Parish (e.g. goldenrod, asters, clovers, Eupatoriums, etc.).

Just wondering if the fall nectar flow has begun for my honeybee colonies and an anticipated fall honey crop this year.

RE: Any East Baton Rouge wildflowers blooming

I just discovered this listing and wish more LA people would use it. I'd like to hear about what's blooming where.
The blue asters in my area (E. Fel) are not yet in bloom. Last year was fantastic. We had about 5 acres that were gorgeous. Cardinal flower is finishing here. Ironweed too. Boneset (or some white-flowered Eupatorium) is in full bloom. MIstflower just now at max bloom. Goldenrods and their companions (Baccharis) are about to explode with color. The Folsom NPS sent a newsletter last month with a nice bloom list. We had a good crop of bees this year. They give my hummers a hard time at the nectar feeders.
