Sighting for September 2, 2020

John and Nancy Crosby

Sea Way NE, Shellman Bluff, GA
McIntosh County, GA

Instead of walking by we ventured in the mostly shady community lot. The snow square stem was in full bloom and there were Zebra Heliconias flying in the shadows. Otherwise the beginning of yet another scorching day but although not as frequent we are still getting enough rain that I don’t need to water my garden. I think we are over that 12 year drought in SE GA!
