Black Cohosh along Martin’s Branch
There have been so many beautiful days this spring offering some respite from the challenges and sorrow. Hopefully you are all finding some--whether by sitting near an open window, on a porch, or in a new vegetable garden. I want, again, to thank all who have come to use the trails at Ivy Creek for being careful and respectful of others.
Today was a day for dragonflies and turtles! I also saw a zebra swallowtail as I walked the Red Trail. And the black cohosh is up. This is a favorite of mine as I associate it with one of the first wild places that I ever came to know well. So I greet it as an old friend when I find it in the spring. This one was particularly beautiful against the bank of Martin's Branch.
