Here’s another flower from yesterday’s walk through the Brickyard Conservation Area in Amherst. There were many of these blooms but very few that hadn’t been battered by the rains. And after last night’s thunder storms I imagine any that weren’t tight buds are not looking too good today. At least I was fortunate enough to find this one.Swamp Rose (Rosa palustris). This is along the boardwalk and that nipped stem must be from the conservation commission folks grooming the trails.
On another note, traffic on the blog has dropped lately. Was it something I said? 🙂 Any suggestions for raising the number of visitors/likes/comments would be appreciated.
