Peachtree Rock HP=C2=A0 =C2=A011:25-2:20Alison Smith, Dave and I spent time=
searching for the Brown Elfin colony that we have seen at this site since =
2011. We found none. The latest date we previously found them was 3/30/13 a=
nd the earliest date was 2/19/17. In 2022 twelve were found on 3/25. Based =
on our past visits, this visit was later than usual, but we still should ha=
ve seen some. The Brown Elfins are always seen on and around the sand myrtl=
e. There seemed to be fewer plants this year. A few were still blooming, bu=
t we missed their peak bloom and many were done. I hope that we were just t=
oo late this year, and that the colony still exists. We=E2=80=99ll have to =
wait until next year to find out.
