The Wildflowers of Florida’s Karick Lake

As everyone knows, Florida is hot. While the heat can be brutal between June and September, it does mean that we Floridians are treated to not one, but two wildflower bursts. Though it is mid-October, the flowers are definitely blooming, attracting a host of butterflies and other pollinators. This resurgence of blossoms was very evident at Karick Lake, a public area within Blackwater State Forest. Underneath the stately pine trees I found a veritable meadow of flowers and greenery that practically seemed to glow in the afternoon light. Definitely one of my favorite places I’ve visited in Florida!
