I never fail to enjoy looking at Slash Pine trees – the shapes, the textures, the strength. Here is what caught my eye this morning.
Another thing that caught my eye was the Elliott’s Milkpea. This is a little vine with white flowers. You can find it climbing on shrubs as you walk down the trail. The flower is small but if you take a close look this is what you will see.
But now to the mud. Since we’ve had a lot of rainy weather, the trail has a number of muddy spots. In one of these, a little white flower caught my eye. Herb-of-Grace was in full bloom.
Further along I spotted what looked like a poached egg laying in the mud.
It took me a minute, but when I realized what it was I looked up and saw the wonderful flowers of a Loblolly Bay.
