    1. Indeed. I'm not a great fan of the coldest days of winter, but I do enjoy the change of seasons. :)

  4. The word "fen" had weiredly dropped out of my vocabulary for some reason until it suddenly came into a conversation this weekend and now, here it is beautifully represented.

    1. I was reading about this particular spot in the state park information, and it's identified as a fen, which makes sense based on the proximity to the lake and the meadow area. It's a very special spot, with unique plants and a view across to a marshy area and then the lake in the distance.

    1. Thanks. Wild strawberries are fabulous--lucky you, too! I love Zizia aurea. I don't have enough sun for it here, but it's fun to see it during hikes and visits to sunny natural areas.
