Today visited a wildlife management area near Poolsville, MD, less than an hour out of the city, to enjoy a few of the sunflower fields that are peaking now. It was warm and muggy but worth it, especially once we found a hidden field away from the parking areas where there were few people and a drone videographer getting ready to launch.

A few weeks ago, hiked with friends on a steamy Sunday along the Appalachian Trail in Virginia, near Thompson Wildlife Management Area, in search of trillium. And we found more trillium than I've ever seen! Along with many other wildflowers. Made it back to the car just as the skies opened up in a crazy downpour.
The trail - the white blaze signifies the Appalachian Trail - was flanked on both sides by fields of trillium.

It's been a weird few months weather-wise with temperatures see-sawing warm and cold regardless of the season. The bluebells came
a little early this year and a few weeks ago, I hiked the Potomac Heritage Trail while they were in full bloom.
And violets and mayapples too.

Last month, an escape from the cold and from everything to St. Petersburg, Florida. I visited with my cousin and her son, walked and photographed the beach for sunrise and for sunset, and enjoyed the Dali museum and its Frida Kahlo exhibit. The escape was much needed, much appreciated, and I already need another one!
