I found some pink Turtlehead flowers so I thought I would share. It is interesting how the different flowers either prosper or they are in decline. I was looking for some Turk's Cap Lilies around camp and can't seem to find any. We had several patches of them in the past and for some reason, there are non to be found. This also brings up the on going debate of what makes for a great black berry season? We were saddened to find that all of the black berry bushes were dried up and did not produce any berries. It was a couple of years ago that we had a booming crop. I don't know if the warmer temperatures zapped them this season. This year was a bad year for Bee Balm as well. Some seasons are better for the different varieties. It just goes to show how Mt. LeConte is forever changing.
Yesterday warmed up a little bit. The high was 69 with a low of 48. Today is starting out cloudy and chilly. I believe the weather forecast is going to be correct today. They are calling for showers through out the day.
