Off to Aronia Avenue

25 Aug


A view from the ridge, up front Canadian Thistle and Burdock


A closer look at some colorful Burdocks and then down we go into the marsh on an old paved road that has seen little traffic since the 1960s.


I’m not sure if this mile of road already has a name or not but at least for today I’m calling it Aronia Ave. as the Aronia has been the most successful plant coming out of the marsh to make it out here on the street. You can’t even notice a crack where it came from but here it is and it has some old chums tagging along on the side lines.


Under the Aronia berries we see a thick bed of unripe bog cranberries.

Aronia facing some cran and blue berries below, here we have 3 very health giving berries for the creatures who happen by here.


The marsh community is very generously giving it back to the street it has been the foundation of for many years and this afternoon’s tide highly agrees, stating nothing can never really disengage. ciao
