In Florida, you don't look to the trees for the best fall color ... you look to the wildflowers.
I came home a different route last Friday afternoon ... I can turn left or right out of my driveway and the mileage is about the same, but I go right most days.
(Don't read anything political into that, if there was a straight shot to work, I'd stay right in the middle)
After work Friday, I came home the road least travelled lately and stumbled upon this 20 acre cutover field just loaded with blazing star.
So, I had to stop, because ... surprise! ... I had my camera with me.
This stuff was astounding. Each flower head was densely packed and just ridiculously healthy. I've never grown blazing star in my flower beds as robust as this wild stuff.
Pretty spectacular and it was buzzing with insects.
I didn't trespass, just shot from the fence line, but I think I may know this land owner so maybe I can get in there for some exploration.
In the meantime, I think I'll be coming home this way for awhile.
