We’ve been driving past some nice stands of Jerusalem Artichoke – Helianthus tuberosus – in various places in Walker county over the past week or so. This morning was a nice foggy morning, so I took advantage of the soft light so, hoping to get some added interest from the dew, and headed out to a nearby patch with my camera.
