Some Floral Finds, Redux!

I was just about to post a new blog about this week's visit to the secret bog pictured above, when a Facebook Memory presented me with a link to a blog I posted 2 years ago on this very same date, containing photos of the very same plants I encountered this year in the very same places.  Somehow, in the midst of so many crises occurring in our world right now, I found this quite reassuring. Whew!

I realize that climate change will in time affect this phenology, but at least just for today, all's right with the world in my neck of the woods. Thank God for small blessings! And I'm also grateful my blog has preserved such a record of so many wonders that surround me here in northeastern New York.  Here are two photos (Grass Pink and Sheep Laurel) from that old post, plus a link to that entry posted on this same date 2 years ago, with photos and an account I would have repeated almost exactly word for word if I had composed a new one today:

Grass Pink (Calopogon tuberosus)

Sheep Laurel (Kalmia angustifolia)

I love visiting your blog. I always learn something new. Thought of you yesterday when we visited a pond we love...the owner, who had given us permission to bird, passed away recently and posted signs went up all over. The boss stopped and talked to the grandson who inherited and he also gave permission. They like birders, not so much kids on ATVs who break the windows in their cabin. Anyhow, there was a gorgeous lily blooming on the edge of the road. I took pics and will post them. So I thought of you.
