Out of Town

Moth MulleinWhen you don’t see me posting in the next few days, don’t go worrying about me… I’ll be out of town camping with nephews and daughter…  It won’t be because I got sucked into some virtual world role playing game or anything like that…

This flower is called Moth Mullein (Verbascum blattaria).  It gets its name from the fact that the fuzzy, purple stamens look somewhat like moth antennae.  It comes in white or yellow.  We have both varieties at Audubon.

I snapped the yellow one along the Universal Trail near the building and the white one out on the embankment of Big Pond.

 

 

 

See you in September!
