Wouldn’t be summer if this old squirrel didn’t show off the most striking flower around our natural ponds, and backyard ponds.
Here in the east, that’s Cardinal Flower, Lobelia cardinals. See how this flower makes a trumpet? Smaller than the ones Hickory showed Sunday, but still a trumpet!
The hummingbirds really love ’em, and they need all the fuel they can get to make their migration flights, just weeks from now. Yep, folks, we’re heading’ into fall!
