About Today’s Photo:
Robin & I went for a post mountain bike swim in Blueberry Lake in Warren, VT yesterday afternoon. There were a variety of seeded wildflowers growing along the access to one of the “beaches” on the shore. This Susan had some very attractive coloring. Black-eyed Susans (Rudbeckia) are of the species among the various wildflower mixes frequently used to restore areas that have been disturbed. This seemed to be the case at Blueberry Lake were some fairly recent excavation had occurred.
