Asleep beneath the snow

When I left home this morning the temperature was a balmy 15ยบ and ten degrees lower than that in Weeksville canyon. Half a mile up the road to the trail head, as I walked past an area that I know well for its wildflowers which are sleeping now beneath the warm blanket of snow it occurred to me to match a few scenes with the flower species that are found in each.

Moth MulleinMoth Mullein, unusual in white

No, it didn’t suddenly revert back to summer again. In the course of doing a project, I have been reviewing my photo library and decided that a few more photos in it are worth posting and will be doing a little of that for a time. I hope to be able to get out into the forests more in a few weeks and shoot more new stuff then. These were taken a few summers ago. The white Moth Mullein is the only white one I’ve seen.
