Summer Cotton Grass


Summer Cotton Grass (Eriophorum vaginatum (Hares Tail Cotton Grass))

All the cotton is all out and glowing along the wet areas. Still a nice new white, later in the summer they will get browned and matted from the rain.

Thank you Cristina. Much like my own thoughts, I can just see them with little baskets of cotton busily spreading it about, flitting here and there, and stopping now and then to admire their reflection in the still water beneath the reeds. Special stuff. ;-)
