gardens and plants en route to the marsh

As mentioned in the previous post, the soil is dark and rich, and the water table is high. Result: a patch of earth on which green and growing things are all bursting with health and vitality.

Gardens upon gardens line this part of the path as Tim and I made our way to the true marsh. You'll see dahlias (the flowers with spiky petals), pumpkins, and a tomato so large that it looks as if it could be a pumpkin, too.

If you look carefully, in one picture you'll see a dog that followed us out of curiosity for a short way. It was skittish; when I turned around a couple times to see if it was still following us, it made as if to run away.
