I wander around the wilderness behind the house every day, almost. I take a lot of photos of mushrooms, wildflowers, insects, leaves and anything else in nature, especially unusual or seldom noticed things. The wilderness is located in the northeast corner of Alabama. It's on the Cumberland Plateau, which is toward the southern end of the Appalachian Mountains.

Wildflowers, Mushrooms and Hieroglyphics
Today, Petey and I were able to take a few pictures of wildflowers, mushrooms and a dead log covered with hieroglyphics. First things first.
Beautiful yellow at the edge of the wilderness.
More Yellow. That's close to the color of our home.
Beautiful wildflowers growing in a briar patch.
What is this?
It dances all day
When the wind blows.
Bad hair day? I don't know. I kinda like the style.
Another red one.
I love this one. These litttle flowers are not much bigger than a dime
The one below is on the same plant, but is a different bloom.
The picture above and the one below are of a dead tree that had fallen. All the bark is gone.
There are hieroglyphics all over it. That proves that ancient man lived here in the past. I wish I knew how to read these markings.
You know what? After looking closer, these look more like where a worm or some kind of bug eat their way around the tree under the bark.
