The Daily Bucket is a place where we can post and exchange our observations about the natural happenings in our neighborhoods. Birds, bugs, blossoms and more - each notation is a record that we can refer to in the future as we try to understand the natural patterns that are unwinding around us.In last Friday's Daily Bucket (link) PHScott started a thread about the botanists John and William Bartram. I remarked that my route to the Deep Dark Woods had been taking me past a Bartram historical marker.
Tuesday morning I stopped at Fickling Mill long enough to take a few pictures. It turns out that William Bartram explored Patsiliga Creek in 1775, and first identifed St. John's wort at that location.
The mill site is located eight miles northeast of the town of Butler in Taylor County, Georgia.
