Smokey  Mountain  Flora

Bull Thistle


Cirsium vulgare





Late Purple Aster


Aster patens

Plentiful in September and October along the Appalachian Trail here in Tennessee. Managed to catch sun filtered through scrub pines and some thin clouds, making the quality of light quite pleasant.

Confederate Violet


Viola sororia priceana

They are popping up in the yard, everywhere. priceanapriceana I waited until nearly sunset and rolled around on the grass to get a nice, low-angle picture. The tone might be a bit mor3e from blue toward the red due to the lateness of day...

Violets are a common food for catepillars of many Fritillary butterflies.
