Color along the boardwalk...

Earlier today, walking through the ankle deep water along the slightly flooded boardwalk through the Ferson Creek Fen (St. Charles, IL). A smattering of purple and pink and white beginning to punctuate the vibrant greens of spring. But at this moment... (aside from the pervasive greens), yellow dominates the wetlands.

 

This single example is but one of thousands that crowd the flooded woods and line the edges of the boardwalk. Catching the sunlight, the fen is alive in brilliant yellow... that is, until the next wave of spring color takes it's turn.

 

Gorgeous... beautiful... long-awaited spring! =)
