Hi All.
I spent 2 hours today, from 11 am-1 pm, at Horseshoe Farm Nature Preserve
and Thornton Grove greenway along the Neuse River in north Raleigh. It was
warm in the upper 80s, partly cloudy with a moderate breeze.
There wasn't much in bloom at Horseshoe Farm- white clover, sneezeweed and
a patch of seeded coreopsis. That is where all the nectaring was taking
place.
I only spent 45 minutes at Thornton Road- all of that in an open meadow
adjacent to the parking lot. The City of Raleigh has planted a mix of
zinnias and coreopsis there which are in full bloom. There is also a patch
of mountain mint in full bloom behind the cultivated annuals. I just didn't
have the time to truly peruse the entire patch, but there was a lot of
butterfly activity.
