The Groundnut’s are blooming along the Red Cedar Trail although they seem to be blooming in different locations from past years. It is one of my favorite fall flowers.

A few weeks ago my wife and I decided to drive down to the Red Cedar State Trail for a short walk. The day before I hurt my back so I thought a good long walk would help. Since the goal was to rehab by back I left by camera at home. When we reached the trail there was a heavy fog, nice dew on the flowers, no wind and ideal conditions for photography. That’s always the way it works.

On our hike we found the Groundnuts were in full bloom. The next morning it was foggy and no wind so I grabbed my camera and headed for the Trail. Of course when I reached the trail there was a strong wind blowing. In spite of the wind I was able to get some photos of the groundnuts.

On several recent walks I’ve managed to photograph a number of flowers. The Touch-me-nots are all over the place. The Groundnuts are a little harder to spot.
