The unseasonably hot weather finally moved on, and I think I have put away the shorts and sandals for a while. Knowing the chilly morning would keep the mosquitoes at bay, Abbie and I headed for the Nature Conservancy for our walk.
Cupflowers seem to be blooming late this year, but are putting on a good show now.
I have been nurturing a patch of these next to my lawn, but they don’t really appreciate my dry, sandy soil. They seem to do better at the conservancy near the ponds and swamps.
Didn’t have the camera with me today, but I thought my cell phone did a pretty decent job. Haven’t mastered a simple way of transferring them from the phone to the computer, so I cheat and e-mail them to myself!
