It amazes me every year how the vegetation along the boardwalk goes from winter browns and greys to lush green in a matter of a few weeks. Along the boardwalk now, the July wildflowers fill every centimetre of space on both sides of the trail.
St. John’s Wort,
to name just a few, are at their peak now, soon to make room for the August wild ones.
Where wildflowers are not present, tall grasses, some two meters high, dwarf the average walker with their impressive size.
Along the stream, is just a few weeks, the bulrushes have grown rapidly, filling the banks of the stream and the salt water marsh.
Molting ducks hide among the growth as the blackbirds continue to fend off the ravens from their young.
Nature, which was asleep for so long, has a few months to grow for this year and is taking full advantage of the heat, every raindrop and ray of sunlight. We who are her witnesses are in awe of her.
