6-10 Purple Avens

Purple Avens, AKA Water Avens, is flowering in its own peculiar way.
American Brooklime can be found in wet ditches and swampy areas.
Musk Flower, a state listed rare or unusual species, can be seen at two points along the West River.
A Red-spotted Purple butterfly was airborne today. Red-spotted Purples interbreed with White Admirals in this part of their range but this one appears to be a classic Red-Spotted Purple.
