Landscapes

Landscapes have a language of their own, expressing the soul of the things, lofty or humble, which constitute them, from the mighty peaks to the smallest of the tiny flowers hidden in the meadow's grass. Anonymous

  1. Trout Lilies

    Trout lilies (Erythronium umbilicatum) cover several acres of some private land near Cairo, Georgia. It is believed to be the largest population of trout lilies in the southeastern United States.
    This spectacular scene of trout lilies came very close to being a memory when the landowner was preparing to develop the land. Fortunately, the landowner was co-operative in working with concerned citizens to arrange its purchase.

  2. Vanillaleaf

    As you walk through these waist-high vanillaleaf flowers (Carphephorus odoratissimus), you can smell the faint essence of vanilla. The aromatic basal leaves were once collected to flavor pipe tobacco.

  3. Water Lilies in a Pond

    Cabbage palms (Sabal palmetto) line the margin of a pond covered by water lilies.

  4. Wiregrass and Blazing Stars

    Wildflowers (Liatris sp.) and grasses (Aristida stricta) are most spectacular after a fire. This photo was taken in late September after this private property was burned in June.

  5. Yellow Moss

    This yellow moss covered several acres of a recently burned area. It totally disappeared from view within a few days.
