I love flowers — the smell and appearance and the butterflies, bees and birds they attract. They bring such peace and beauty to the world. If you’ve read my other diversity posts about Lake Neatahwanta then you will already know that I invite help with identification. I will admit I got a “C” in my college plant identification course. These are not all of the flowers I have seen at the eastern shore of the lake but they are the ones I labeled when I photographed them. In preparing to restore the former Stevenson Beach area many flowers and ultimately many of the butterflies were lost. Here’s to positive thoughts that the rest will be left to bring harmony to the lake. Peace.
