Amber fields of marsh

Waterfront Park, Charleston, S.C.
It won't be long before this marsh is lush and green.

Years ago I stood admiring the scene and a couple of tourists walked by and said, "If they cleaned out some of this grass this would be right pretty."  Gulp.

This picture is for my sister Shirley in Edmonton who sent me a bag of Smarties (the Canadian candy like M & M's) and Tim Horton's coffee. What a treat. The candy is sadly already gone.

  1. The marshes in the Carolinas are wonderful in every season.

  2. Those marshes are lovely even without being green... maybe more so now than when they are.

  3. The marsh grasses are lovely. The tourists - - eh, not so much.

  4. Tourists, blaah! What do they know?

  5. Around here, I am sure they will be late greening up this year.

  6. I had Smarties as a kid in Germany, too! And you know I like Tim Horton's coffee... :-)


Leave me a comment. They make me strong.
