Shenandoah Day Three

The rain and fog has blown away from the mountains and the skies are filled with mare’s tail clouds, signaling fair weather.
The trail is lined with a profusion of spiderwort flowers. I love that purple color with a touch of blue. Occasionally I see a clump of the flowers with purple/pink tones.
Lots of wild geraniums also. Maybe today is going to be purple flower day.
I told Laura to get up on this tree stump for a photo. She’s pretty short and was convinced it couldn’t be done. I think it was just a ploy to get me up there.
Definitely purple flower day. These Showy Orchis flowers come in light pink too, but I only see the purple/white just starting to bloom.
I am walking through a tree cathedral. Laura and I are silent, feelng the reverence.
In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks.
