One of Sixty-three Species

This Storksbill flower was one of sixty-three different species that I found blooming in and along the edges of Hamilton, Ontario last Friday, November 14. I think being in a low area, below an escarpment, and next to Lake Ontario keeps flowers blooming longer in this area. Also, there is a paved trail with street lights that goes next to the harbour. I think the combination of pavement heat, streetlights, and lake water also help keep the area warmer.
