Although the ephemeral wildflowers of the deep-woods are finished, woodland edge plants are blooming now. Spiderworts are eye-catching, with fresh blossoms every morning. I think this one is Ohio Spiderwort, or Bluejacket, (Tradescantia ohiensis.)
I teach economics at Kalamazoo College. My wife is also an economist. We were on sabbatical in Europe for the 2014-15 academic year. (Salamanca, Spain, followed by Oxford, UK.) We were in Uruguay for the 2006-7 academic year.
