#NewThisDay Writing From My Photo Stream

Hope and the future for me are not in lawns and cultivated fields, not in towns and cities, but in the impervious and quaking swamps.
— Henry David Thoreau, Walking, https://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/1862/06/walking/304674/

This is how the river is framed by a blossoming tree before rain.

And, this is how a fresh water brook holds a blossom afloat when it falls from a hardwood in bloom. 

This is how, beside wetlands, a fern fiddles in grass.

And this is how bark in all colors of trees softens and crumbles in swamp.
