Photo of the Day – 2014-08-28

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThis is one of my favourite plants along the Rose Point Trail, Swamp Vervain (Verbena hastata). There are only a few visible as you walk along the trail and they act a little like a calendar. The blossoms move up the flower head as the season advances. This photo was taken early in August, and at this point the blossoms have pretty much reached the top. (August 2014)
