Labor Day Celebration

On Saturday Cyndi and I took a drive to the foothills and mountains. I enjoyed seeing this Mountain Hollyhock, a tall wildflower that grows in the mountains.

Many mushrooms were pushing up through the forest floor, perhaps due to a rainstorm last week that watered them.

And, of course, we saw some birds! This warbler was tricky to identify, but the yellow throat and complete eye ring suggest it is a Nashville Warbler.

I love hollyhocks and the Mountain hollyhocks probably started it all. Love the pictures and report of the trip.

Lovely photos! I'd never heard of Mountain Hollyhocks before.
