April 5: Fringed Phacelia

Fringed Phacelia, from up close and far away. Jake's Creek Trail in the Greenbriar area of the Great Smokies is famous for its wildflowers, and in particular for the display put on by fringed phacelia. The little flower literally covers acres of the forest floor along the lower part of the trail for a short time in April. Beautiful!

Because of Easter Weekend, I will be away from home and internet access until Monday. So, I will post my blogs for the upcoming days all at once, and let you bask in buckets of violets. I hope everyone has a Happy Easter, and safe travels for anyone traveling!
