Mid-Summer Hike

Just some observations from this morning's walk.

Not as many flowers are blooming as early summer, but I found this unusual flower.

A woodland sunflower


Queen Anne's Lace

Pretty spherical flower

A big ole snapping turtle

A feather

Deer leg bones

You never know what you'll see on a hike.

The unusual flower at the top is Horse Nettle. The flowers will give way to a tiny, poisonous fruit that looks somewhat like a yellow tomato when ripe. You might want to make sure you don't have it in the pastures where your horses graze, as it is poisonous to them too, even the green plant.

Thank you Clyde. The plant is down by the creek, not by the horses. Good to know what it is.
