Comments are encouraged and appreciated. We are amateur botanist, and we do make mistakes sometimes with our identifications. We strive to make this a good identifying resource. All comments are moderated by me and may take several days to appear. This is due to the high number of inappropriate comments that have nothing to do with this subject.

WE ARE MOVING!!! 

   As of today, 02/03/2021, I will be moving this blog to my own web site. This will give me greater control of my content and make it more secure. I also hope it will be more enjoyable for you. You should not notice a whole lot of difference. All the same content is there. Some of the format has changed just a little.

   You can still enter your e-mail if you want to receive a message when I make a new post. You can remove it at any time. Here is a sample of what that e-mail will look like. E-mails should start some time this month! Just depends on nature at this point.

 You don't need any other social media.

   I hope you still go the the web site if you need aid in identifying a flower you have found. Right now there are over 625 blooming plants in 88 searchable families. There is a drop-down menu of all the categories you can search. If you want to only see orchids, just select "Orchidaceae (Orchid Family)" from the list. If you want to see the scenic post from our adventures, just select "Scenic". There are a lot more choices.

I would like to know what you think. There are places to leave comments and likes.

OK, I guess you are wondering how to view this marvelous web site.

Cumberland Mountain State Park/Black Mountain

Taken from the bridge at Cumberland Mountain State Park.

  
   I have had several requests to post some pictures that Judy and I have taken at the various state parks that we visit. Cumberland Mountain ranks right at the top for fall colors. It is also one of our favorite parks. We just returned from a visit there. While we were there we also visited nearby Black Mountain. I hope you enjoy the pictures.

Thanks
