I spent a sublime morning this week at the Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge on the Eastern Shore of the Chesapeake Bay, in the beautiful State of Maryland.
Outside the Visitor’s Center, a wildlife garden that includes Ironweed (Vernonia noveboracensis),
The very-familiar Rudbeckia with the less common Obedient Plant (Physostegia virginiana).
One of the many abandoned farmhouses within the Refuge.

Same view, with
osprey heron not as noticeable but with the sun!
