Went out during a recent foggy morning with the intent to get pictures of the chicory patches I’d admired for several weeks near the interchange of Collinsville Road and Interstate 255 near the Fairmont Park Racetrack.

To my dismay, they were no more. Cut down in their prime of lives. They’d been mowed. So I kept cruising down Collinsville Road. Down, down, down the road I went near Cahokia Mounds World Heritage Site…, and then the glowing blue caught the corner of my eye. Not along the historical Mounds, or Woodhenge or the like, but rather in a small neglected lot across the roadway. By then the fog had started lifting, but some nice stormy type clouds marbled the sky.
