Several years ago the Chattanooga Valley Church of the Nazarene generously opened a walking track next to a creek on their property in Flintstone, Georgia and made it available to the public. My wife and I take advantage of that track from time to time, and have been surprised and pleased by how many wildflowers grow in the area. Yesterday was a beautiful day, so we walked the track, and I went back later to photograph the wildflowers. Here are a dozen native species blooming now along the track.
