American Lotus is in peak bloom at the PGT right now. There were hundreds of flowers blooming this morning.
The intense summer heat and dry weather is not bothering them. They have their feet wet in the “swamp” so they don’t mind the lack of rain.
The other plants on the property are showing stress. As a result I suspect we won’t see as many butterflies as usual on the butterfly walk this Saturday.
It should still be a nice walk. Please join us. It starts at 10 AM at the visitor center and should end before lunch.
