Some parts of the marsh are colorful this time of year. Grass has grown, wildflowers are starting to peek out. Others…not so much. But at least the wooded parts look less bleak than the open ponds.
Another shot of #wildflowers from the same hike, closer to the parts of the marsh with water. The purple/white flowers are wild radish.
This one works better when viewed at a larger size. I think I like the yellow fiddlenecks shot better because it works at a smaller size too.
There were a bunch of these poppies here last year.
I think it's been about a year since a small fire burned in this corner of the marsh preserve. It's less obvious on the ground where new grass has grown, but it's clear to see on this tree where the fire burned and where it stopped.
