I ventured down to the swamp to see if winter had finally taken a vacation.
There, I discovered Green has chased Brown down the road,
and there were definitely new members in the community.
The musk thistle has raised its head!
There are musk thistles in all stages and in all arrays
staying at the Swampground.
I know that some would rather host other summer residents
besides the thistle family,
but I can't help but appreciate the dramatic beauty
of this formidable weed.
Welcome to the swamp.
