date?
Hey Will, is the date correct on these photos? Were they really taken on January 19? I know that Tennessee's in the south and all, but I wouldn't expect a plant in the Great Smoky Mountains to be blooming at that time of year, much less covered with insects...

 
sent email on this 1/3/21
I sent Will an email about this 3 January 2021. Hoping for a correction--January does look off.
