Cardinal Flower for Ruby Tuesday


I remembered this morning that a friend had told me two weeks ago that Cardinal flowers were in bloom growing wild along the rock ledges along the shore of our river. I hurried down there this morning taking my cane with me. The rocks were a bit damp, mossy and slippery in places. I managed to get s few pictures of this vibrant red wildflower. Isn't it beautiful!?

I've never seen a cardinal flower before. It is indeed worth a clamber over the rocks.
