On one of our visits to the Azalia Trail, Joel and I met up with some of the residents as well as interesting wildflowers. We will probably make many more trips to the trail as the woods are beautiful in the fall. The flowers are not in full bloom yet, but at their peak they are a sight to see.
This plant is called eryngo and is part of the parsley family and blooms from August to October. It resembles the rattlesmake-master, also of the parsley family, which blooms from May to August.
The liatris that the moth is relaxing on has not fully opened, but before long the woods will be alive with their purple flowers.

I am really, really enjoying your blog thingie. I feel very much in tune with your views of nature and Robert Frost. Thanks so much for sharing.
Hey Susan. I’m not sure if you received the comment I just sent or if I deleted it by mistake. So, here’s what I said. Your nature pictures are stunners. How did you get the butterfly to hold still for its portrait? And I’m wondering what those stones will finally look like in the field. Even though it’s already midnight, I sure would like to go for a wild buggy ride and smell all the good smells of the country.
