Balm



When you mix sand with abandoned military infrastructure, it automatically feels to me like the American Southwest.

A romantic spot, no?

Salidago sempervirens in seed.

Gulls.

Memento.

Memento mori.

Yes.

Again.


Betsy harvesting Oriental Bittersweet, Celastrus orbiculatus for wreath-making. It's a little past its prime, but  still worth a go. We easily imagine a park official or officious personality with less than optimal knowledge stemming this habit, so we cut with the engine running.

  1. Is it me or has it just been an exceptionally amazing season for watching the goldenrod go to seed down by the shore? All the seedheads seem so lush and fat this year like they're begging you to take notice of them.

  2. I don't know, but they are spectacular. Maybe becaus they didn't get rained on too much?
