Along the Creek

I just finished a long and difficult weekend working nights in a local trauma center. I need to see something pretty. Don't have much to say though.

Joe-Pye weed.
Square-stemmed Monkey Flower.
Dock-leaved Smartweed.
This fern was four feet tall. I really need to get up north.

Nice photo of the joe-pye weed. We are knee-deep in goldenrods now. Isn't it reassuring that Mother Nature provides "pretty" when we need it the most. I think if more people bothered to really spend time in Nature, there'd be less trauma.

Thanks Laura, I agree.

I have that smartweed growing 6 feet tall and had no idea what it was!! Thank you for saving me the trouble of looking it up. I was thinking it was called pigweed (probably made that up!)

Would like to know what that berry is.

Thanks for sharing *pretty* with us - we could all use more.

Thank you for sharing these beautiful photos with us! I need nature so much these days. A four foot fern - wow - very cool! I love the shrooms, too.

It SOUNDS like you need some pretty!
A trauma center? Good grief.
GO put your feet up. Hugs!
