The Nature Trail takes me past many plants that have plates identifying them.
Stoker Aster (Stokesia Laeris)
Mushroom with a unique center design.
St John’s Wort is a perennial shrub with bright showy yellow flowers. Here’s an interesting article on StreetsofSalem about St. John’s Wort.
And, my walk keeps taking me deeper into the woods.
Pine Tree that looks 4 stories high with a thick trunk. I wonder how old it is…
The stream of water must be attracting the bugs. There’s one buzzing above my head right now. Guess it’s time to get out of these woods.
Now, it’s back up the hill keeping on the walking trail with a canopy of trees to shade me from the hot morning sun.
And, over the bridge I walk pass the Mimosa Tree again.
So, this ends my walk with nature this morning. I hope you enjoyed the tour.
