The dogs and I walked out today at Percy Warner Park, and I took these photos on or near the Mossy Ridge Trail.
And last of all, a wildflower new to me, and the only wild orchid I have ever seen in the Warner Parks. It is Tipularia- the crane-fly orchid. It blooms in early autumn and puts up leathery basal, single leaves over the winter. The underside of each leaf is purple.
How I wish I had seen it in bloom!
