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.
Pale Touch-me-not, a native species, has been added to the USWildflowers database (07/14/2010.) Scientific name is Impatiens pallida. This plant also is known by the common name Pale Snapweed. Photo below was taken in Haywood County, NC, on 07/12/2010.
