Wildflowers as far as the eye can see was the scene we encountered on our Sunday afternoon amble around the Green Cay Wetlands nature reserve. I think these purple flowers are called Pickerelweed, and they provide both food and shelter for many animals. Bees visit to gather nectar and small fish lurk amongst the foliage which offers protection from larger predators, although I’m sure that Big Al has the occasional wander through to see what he can find.
It was the most perfect spring afternoon and all we could hear was the sound of birds. Totally blissful.
If you have any wildflower photos, be sure to take them over to Jude’s ‘Wildflower Challenge’. She’ll be more than happy to see them.
Happy Wednesday to you all.
