9/5/2011 I planted Swamp Thistle (seeds collected from other parts of the wetland) next to the driveway and it’s doing very well. Swamp Thistle is a beautiful native thistle – not aggressive, and very attractive to bees and butterflies.
10/15/2011 We finally got our driveway repaired from the flooding last summer – we’ve had a temporary fix until now. Jeff Reglin and his guys came and built a very sturdy bridge around the culvert. Hopefully this one will survive a flood.
10/15/2011 Parsnip Meadow, with some areas mowed for parsnip, and the new bridge.
