...lots of flowers! The weather cooperated long enough for us to get a ride on the Butler-Freeport Trail last weekend. The Butler-Freeport is a great trail for seeing unusal wildflowers, especially at the Freeport end. Even with an abundance of invasive Japanese knotweed, there was a great variety of flowers, and several that I'd never seen before. New finds included:
One down side to the ride - the middle section of the trail is torn up by installation of a sewer line. The trail is still quite passable on a hybrid bike, but rougher than ususal and muddy in places.
