Carex plantaginea (Plantain-Leaved Sedge)

The other day I woke up with an acre in my side, so I went to see the famous Dr. Warren Woods in Michigan for a Hepatica treatment. I emerged feeling refreshed and invigorated, and even my mood was improved. While there I took several shots - none were painful, and the best was this shot of Carex plantaginea flowering on a steep hillside. Unfortunately, the sky in the background overexposed, but it's a new style of picture that I may attempt again. Plants with apetalous flowers are beautiful too... and important!

"I think I cannot preserve my health and spirits, unless I spend four hours a day at least - and it is commonly more than that - sauntering through the woods and over the hills and fields, absolutely free from all worldly engagements." Henry David Thoreau
