Winter Wetland

Photo by Gayla Trail

Common reed (Phragmites australis) In the last few years I have tried to get out more during the winter as a way to get out from under the crushing weight of cold and snow and remind myself that plants are still alive during the winter months. I took this photo during last weekend’s excursion to my favourite place in Toronto which just happens to be located directly in this wetland. Standing there looking at the tall grasses and rushes lifts my spirits at any time of year.
