This is one of my favorite flowers on the mountain. Jewelweed, also known as "touch me not", is used for treatment of poison ivy. The reason I am so fond of it is because I have memories of an old mountain man teaching me about it when I was about 7 years old. He took my family out hunting for geodes and taught us about "touch me not" in the process. It is a beautiful flower.
It is still warm up top. It reached 71 degrees. The humidity has come back with the rain. We received 1.6" of rain.
