A swampy area near the railway tracks in Zephyr, Ontario
This is the same railway line as last week but several kilometres north in a swampy area. The largest square is of turtlehead (Chelone glabra). I grow a pink version in my gardens and was delighted to find this small stand of white ones in the wild! Moving clockwise: purple loosestrife (Lythrum salicaria), obedient plant (Physostegia virginiana), wild aster (I have no idea which variety - there are so many!), red clover (Trifolium pratense) and Queen Anne's lace (Daucus carota) going to seed.
