June 29th and June 30th, 2014
When you're stopped on the interstate for 3 hours,
one advantage you have is being able to see your surroundings in detail.
And the bright spot for me
was that I was "parked" next to Black-eyed Susans (rudbeckia hirta)
and the butterfly who loved them.
Black-eyed Susans were a mainstay where I grew up in the Midwest,
so it's nice to have them here in the Shire and points north of it.
Especially along the interstate on a Sunday afternoon.
