Flowers In The Marsh

The marsh is blooming.  It’s like a feast for the animals and insects who live there and come to get something to eat.  There’s more water in the marsh than usual because of all the rain we’ve been getting.  There are as many frogs as apples this year.

My husband said “bow WOW!
