Part 6 The road to town
May 22, 2010. I took my weekly walk into town. It is great to take pictures because there are cultivated flowers, wild flowers, exotic flowers and wildlife.
It started with common clover. This is a beautiful, but overlooked flower.
I got onto the old railroad grade and found these beautiful yellow flowers.
After a few hundred feet, I reached the Catholic Church. I had photographed these flowers before, but they seemed larger and brighter.
I continued on the old railroad grade and eventually reached the bird sanctuary. (How do the birds know that it is a sanctuary? Can they read the sign?) There were some very small intricate flowers along the trail.
I went back to the railroad tracks. As I said earlier, this is a great place to find rare flowers. I found two flowers that I have never seen before. For the flower below, only one plant was found.
Then I found another unusual flower. There were a few of these beside the track.
Across the road, in front of somebody's driveway is a pink hedge.
I went to the old trolley line and found more interesting flowers.
I think that the flowers below are absolutely beautiful. I know that I have taken many pictures of this flower.
And then I found some wildlife.
Here is a close-up!
And then more flowers.
Another while blossom.
I almost stepped on this creature and its brood. I have posted more pictures at Wildlife 5.
I finally returned to the railroad tracks. I love clover.
And here is another strange flower. It has green blossoms.
Another strange flower near the tracks.
I walked up one of the streets in the Village and in front of a boarded vacant lot were some flowers.
As I wondered who planted them, I got my answer.
I proceeded into the woods and found the smallest flower that I have ever seen. It was very hard to photograph because it was too small for my camera to focus.
Other flowers in the forest.
I finally left the woods and walked through a school yard. I found this red strange plant.
