Marsh Greening

 Cattails have sprouted

Brown is quickly being replaced by green in the marshes here.

Love the green emerging and also how the turtle finds a small rock on which to sunbathe!

Good morning, pretty images of the marshland and reflections. Love the cute turtle. Have a happy day and weekend!

The annual green-up is a happy time up north, especially when accompanied by blue skies. Glad you are enjoying them now.

Sorry about visiting rarely at present. Time, wifi and electricity are scarce in South Africa at present.

Lovely photos - the greening of the marsh seems to be a quiet scene with peaceful ripples reaching out to the viewer.

Good to see the green taking over.

Stephanie said...

Nice to see green is finally returning to your neck of the woods. Great images!

Jen @ The Light Laughed said...

I've been waiting to see the wet spots green up around here, the rushes are still quite brown. But it's hot, and very dry so that might be a reason.

Love the turtle popping out for some sunshine.
