Phlox and Forest

Late May and early June in Connecticut, wild blue phlox flowers appear in meadows and along roadsides. Never actually blue, the color varies widely, from white through pale blue to almost to violet. This stand of phlox welcomes the hiker to the Deep Book class 1 trout stream hidden away in an industrial park in Newtown. What was once considered wasteland, has been recognized by Trout Unlimited as valuable resource and is now being protected and nurtured. A lucky bonus for outdoorsmen who happen to work in the area.
