An accidental garden Posted by Hello

This morning, my husband and I went out walking to see if we could find any bloodroot (Sanguinaria canadensis) in bloom. It is a pretty little flower and there is a population of it about three-quarters of a mile from our house. We were unable to find any blooming so we decided to poke around in an adjacent area that at one time was used by county residents as an impromptu dump. This site holds everything from old washing machines to chamber pots, as well as quite a collection of bottles and jars. I have never been able to figure out why people insist on dumping trash in a swamp, but I digress...

I found several little terraria among the cast-off items. Mother Nature trying to make the best of a bad situation, I guess.

I still say it's a shame "BogBlog" is not available for an address. You could use it in conjunction with this blog to show the more seedy side of the swamp.
