Furnace Run always has a nice surprise for me. On this day it was a robust clump of comfrey, looking happy as can be along the stream bank. With all the mugwort growing nearby, you could call it an herbalist's garden...

single isolated plant; low sandy terrace above stream bed; this is the white-flowered form, which I am not accustomed to seeing in gardens. It's beautiful.

An attempt to relocate a 30+ year old record for Cypripedium parviflorum resulted in this thing -- actually 3 of these small, weak-looking things, which look an awful lot like Cypripedium, but I just can't say for sure. Could be Epipactis?

This population was found under trees on a steep stream bank. Growing with Krigia biflora, Amphicarpaea bracteata, and Vicia caroliniana. The Vicia is significant, I think, because I notice it often grows in the same sites where Cypripedium grows (or used to grow) but seems to be able to persist in shaded conditions longer than that species.

Only 3 individuals seen, all on single inflorescence of Viburnum acerifolium. They appeared to be actively harvesting nectar from the shallow-cupped flowers (and in the process getting heavily dusted with pollen).
