The sedges flaunt their harvest
In every meadow nook
And asters by the brook-side
Make astors in the brook
  (these lines are from September by Helen Hunt Jackson.)

I am not positive I have these correctly identified.  I was reading this poem and had to look sedges to see what they are.  I clicked on images and scrolled down and the top one was included.  I think it is so pretty.

These pictures are amazing; something I don't really see or notice anywhere. The first one is so pretty, and really looks like fall.

I'm not sure what the first photo is of but I sure do like it a LOT!

Sandra said...

the first one would make a great Christmas tree ornament, pick it, dry it and even spray it... both are fantastic fotos

Beautiful shots and poem too. I don't know about it being a sedge but it is beautiful. I remember a poem to describe different grasses and one part was "sedges have edges" meaning the shape of the stem---so who knows. Funny the things one remembers. Whatever the shot is beautiful. MB

I especially like the "burst" effect of the first blossom. The second has great color and detail.

Hey here it is--“Sedges have edges; rushes are round; grasses are hollow right up from the ground”.
That old thinking cap works once in awhile. Haha MB
