Wormsloe State Historic Site, Savannah, GA

The Orange Trail has just been widened & most of the trailside Sparkleberry and Common Sweet Leaf destroyed. We finally found 3 small Sparkleberry with fresh blooms in a group and saw 3 King’s and 2 Oak Hairstreaks on the Blue Trail along the river. Last year we had to look in the host plant, sweet bush to find 1 as with global warming they eclose later than the Sparkleberry blooms remain fresh.
