Sycamore Springs: An underappreciated flower finally gets notice
It's hiding in plain sight. Passed and too often overlooked by thousands of cars, daily

By Cynthia Meyer
From Sycamore Springs, KY
Here is another flower (see accompanying photo) that many people pass by, some twice a day or more. Yet the poor thing goes unnoticed, and unappreciated.
Until tonight at least, every night it stands out. Yet I am in too much of a hurry to take a picture or some other lame excuse.
Tonight I made the exception. I stopped my vehicle to capture and appreciate the beauty, and perseverance of this stalwart bloom.
Sad to say that my pictures do not come close to doing justice to this gorgeous flower. I regret that I have not taken the time to take a few shots of it during the day.
However it does thrive in a rather hazardous environment to take a picture in the daytime. One might be taking their life in their own hands to do so.
Where does such beauty flourish in spite of such perilous conditions?
- A few yards past the exit ramp of the Cumberland Parkway headed South on Highway 61(a matter of a few inches literally!).
Photo taken in the wee hours of the morning of June 30, 2011 Highway 61 just south of the Cumberland Parkway Access Ramps.
As always... Cynthia Meyer
