In the foreground: a new view of marsh smartweed, a plant I profiled on Flowery Prose around this time last year. (Take a look at my original post here, along with a close-up view of the flower). I shot this photo from our boat as we followed the northwest shoreline of McGregor Lake (near Milo, Alberta), on a crazy hot and smoky August afternoon.
I’m not certain of the ID of the large reeds in the background; I’ve done some tentative digging but haven’t come up with anything conclusive. I’ll update this post if I can find out any more info about them.
