November blooms

I enjoyed a short hike along a segment of the Historic Champlain Canalway Trail in the Town of Halfmoon this afternoon from Brookwood Road to the southern boundary of the Town.  I brought along binoculars in hopes of spotting some wildlife.  No luck.

What I did spy, to my surprise, were several wildflowers in bloom!

I also saw:  (1) Small White Aster, (2) Wild Parsnip, (3) Red Clover, (4) Common Dandelion, and (5) Cow Vetch.

Perhaps I should not yet pack away the Bermuda shorts?

Nevertheless, I have decided to dust off the snow shovel and have it handy.  Just in case.

Happy trails!
