My Red Maple Swamp
At the end of my street in the Capital District of New York, there is a beautiful red maple swamp. Even though I don’t own it I think of it as mine because I probably venture into in more often than anyone in the neighborhood. Red maple swamps are some of my favorite places because of the variety of plants and the beauty of the mosaic of plants and water. Here are some photos of the plants I saw today between the thunderstorms.
One of the first plants I noticed was the early azalea, Rhododendron prinophyllum, not only the flowers but the fragrance!
The vegetation was so lush after the rain.
