Bright and Colorful

After so many days of gray skies it was great to start the day with so much color and light.

Fortunate to be able to go to a few spots in Sandwich this morning. What a great start to the week.052118 Monday Sunrise052118 Morning Light052118 Sandwich Boardwalk

Friends and Foes Along the Rail Trail

 

What you see are wild plants along the section of the Cape Cod Rail Trail (CCRT) While I was glad to not detect any poison ivy, these plants are invasive and are not native to New England. The two frail, barely visible weeds in the center, however, are very damaging to the soil and create an environment where only poison ivy can thrive.

I spotted very soil friendly clover along the trail. Areas near the parking lots were wisely mass planted with clover. Clover improves the quality of the soil and allows many species of plants to thrive.

Spring?

On a day when we are rejoicing that it feels like, I won’t say it, …. that feels like non-winter, I can only imagine what these guys are feeling right now.
