After work today on my way home I stopped to pick some Fall wildflowers and grasses that have gone to seed. Some of the grasses have a nice purple color to them. I was not far out on a country road and I was not having car trouble. But, a car slowed down to make sure I was OK. I thanked the woman that stopped and told her I just wanted to pick some flowers. Her response with a smile was, "Be careful, my mama always said you can get chiggers from those...". I told her I would be careful and thanked her again for stopping. Now if that isn't Alabama I don't know what is.
Please comment below if you don't know what a chigger is and I'll redirect you.... :)
