Wanted: The Perfect Mom
Native to the eastern half of the United States from Maine to Alabama, the wildflower is a favorite of hummingbirds. Although not substantiated, some say the plant can be used as an antidote for poison ivy.
My editor reminded me not everyone would know to what the title referred. Good point, I agreed. And the new title made sense.
Planning some real-life pictures for this blog, last week Sunny and I set out, as we do most mornings, to walk a nearby, shady road where the plant grows wild beneath the oak and walnut trees. Alas, someone decided the side of the road should be mowed. No wildflowers. No exploding seed pods.
But not to worry. I had a family visit planned for over the weekend 100 miles east. I packed the camera, certain I would find touch me nots galore along my relative's country roads.
And I did. But the camera's memory card was still inserted in the computer back home.
Thank goodness for the cell phone.
And as always...
Enjoy the read!
