Yesterday afternoon, the mountains were calling. About 4PM. In 20 minuets I’m at 4,000 feet altitude and feel like I’m floating. Changing skies, overcast with sun peaking through. Not knowing what to expect for sure. Suddenly I spot a Carolina Lily bush, pull over.
Swallowtail are enjoying this showy bush. The Carolina Lily is North Carolina state’s official wildflower. The Turks Cap Lily is similar to the Carolina Lily, but has a green streak at the base of each flower segment forms a green star.
