A few shots from Grassy Waters Natural Area today

Daughter and I took a walk on the boardwalk over these wetlands this afternoon, and it was so beautiful. The water lilies were blooming.

A bunch of these yellow flowering bushes rising out of the water....
Lovely blue water hyacinths...

Some beautiful white puff balls. Someone I.D.'d these for me one year. But I have forgotten the name! They look like atomic balls!


Water lilies stretching far and wide....
Some build up of floating plant material making an artistic pattern....
Stacked canoes ready to go...
And check out how much money can be saved by avoiding bottled water! Amazing!
Xoxo....Julie   (that was a nice walk on a cool breezy day....well, in the shade anyway.....)

Hi Julie, what a beautiful place to walk with your daughter and see so many blooming plants in the water. Those amazing white puffballs look like buttonbush. Have a wonderful week! :)

I thought they had run out of funds to keep that park going and were going to close it down. I'm so happy to hear that it's still open. I spent many happy Sunday afternoons there with my two boys.
