Saturday sampler along Veterans Bike Path

Sunny.  Low humidity.  Low 80s.  What a spectacular August day!

Veterans Bike Path beckoned me.  Another week has passed and it is time to revisit this site to continue my ongoing wildflower inventory, particularly since this one is winding down.  I will prepare a wildflower field guide for this trail and have it posted on this blog in March 2015.  Stay tuned!

I walked the southern half of the trail today (from Route 146A north to the 1.75-mile marker) and observed, among other species, these blooms –
