Lori Arent, Lori White, and I finally got some greatly needed sun and
warmth -- a day of* above* normal temperatures, a rarity in the last 10
days -- while we covered the weedy hilltop at the NC Museum of Art grounds,
from around noon - about 2 pm. Diversity is starting to drop now, as
expected, and the large zinnia stands are now done and removed. But, Frost
Aster (*Symphyotrichum pilosum*) is now coming into bloom on the hill, and
most species were nectaring on it. We looked especially hard for Southern
Skipperling, which I had seen here about 2 weeks ago, and we had another a
week earlier on zinnias. But no luck today.
