So. Many. Flowers!

I particularly like the shot of the thistle.

Lovely, lovely loverly! It's the best medicine on Mother Earth to see so many flower pictures. I could look at yours all day long. :-)

I like the bergamot. That is lovely.

Alice: Thank you! I tell you, there was more blooming in this little section than it looked from the road.

Zippi: Thank you, I'm glad you enjoyed the virtual walk!

Anita: Thank you. I couldn't believe how much bergamot was growing in this trail section. I'm used to seeing it along my local bike trails and in the Arboretum, but there was tons more of it here. Alas, it has already died out at Grady Tract, which I visited over the weekend.
