As my hike with Holliday led me farther down this delightful path, my eyes were enriched with the beauty of God’s creation. In reviewing photos of the hike, I became interested in discovering the names of the many interesting plants I saw. Here is my first discovery (more to come!!). (The names are listed in the following order: family name, genus and then species name. This will be my protocol if at all possible. Thanks to https://plants.usda.gov.
Asclepiadaceae – Milkweed family
Asclepias L. – Milkweed
Asclepias speciosa -Showy Milkweed
(Note the two little friends enjoying this exotic looking flower.)
