A Visit to the Scrub

On the way to the river you cross a little bridge where you’ll find some Green Arrow Arum whose leaves have a lovely shiny green appearance.

Continuing on you will start up a little sandy hill.  Look up and you will see a Sand Pine.  The needles are short and the bark is rough toward the base but almost smooth toward the top.

When you reach the top and look around you’ll see the Largeflower False Rosemary –

It is in the Mint Family and worthy of a closer look –

If you look on the left side of the trail you will see a little yellow flower with the common name of Candyroot and is a member of the Milkwort Family.


Look closely and you will see a little 4 petal white flower called Innocence –


And speaking little white flowers with 4 petals, take a look at the Dahoons as they are starting to flower.

    John, your photos help us really see what’s there, what we might miss with our untrained eyes. Beautiful surprises await us as we travel slowly down the path, looking up, looking down, looking right next to us. Can’t wait to visit again and see these delights.
