We drive the back roads through Florida, Georgia and South Carolina before we reach North Carolina.
It takes a little longer but it’s a much more enjoyable trip!
We saw these beautiful purple flowers and
even took the time to stop and take a few photos! (This is the only one I altered.)
When we saw this field I said, Look at that Maize!
But is that what it is?
When I google, Maize, the plants I see don’t look like this!
So what do you think this mystery plant is? It was only about 3 feet tall and appeared to be fully mature. But WHAT is it? I know someone will know!
Don’t we love our blog buddies! They are always a wealth of information! Rachel knew the mystery crop is Milo…. Rusty Milo! According to Wikipedia, they are in the Sorghum family and grown for feed grain! Here’s some Google pics…a couple look like MY photos! Thanks Rachel !!!
(I don’t know what the purple wild flower is either!)
Well…that didn’t take long either!

That IS a Monarch Butterfly I hope! heehee!
