About Today’s Photo:

Mountain sandwort is in bloom on the summit of Camel’s Hump. This diminutive, low growing plant is native to our alpine regions along the higher peaks of the Green Mountains in Vermont. It creates lovely carpets of tiny white flowers. Please be careful not to step on it (or any other bit o’ green!) when you’re up on the summit!
