An Outdoor Wednesday from West Virginia



A Saturday hike through the Cranberry Bogs/Glades in West Virginia. 
We call these "cotton puffs,”  but I am not sure what the correct name is for them. The blog flowers were not in bloom, and the birds were few, but the watery bogs and all of the trees, ferns and other ground plants were a true treat for the eyes. We were on a boardwalk from beginning to end so that was really nice for me.

  3. These are beautiful. What a lovely place to hike. The first picture looks like quilt work with the brilliant red patches. "Cotton puffs" look cool and a nice boardwalk to walk on. Very nice.

  6. May be you should harvest those organic cotton puffs. I was reading Dr. Mercola and how he discussed all those feminine products that we poor women have to endure. He said the commercial ones were not made of cotton, and he had natural cotton products. And today, I see your cotton puffs.

    The ship Rena is is a worst shape, containers are falling apart and landing on the beach.

  8. This post and the one below give a beautiful picture of your wonderful world. I like "hike" on boardwalks -- and it really is the only way Bill can walk very far on some days.

    Yes the Yankees failed us, and I'm so sad. Grandy was my new best friend, since he began with the Erie Seawolves, only 25 miles from us...I go into baseball withdrawl at this time of the year, and am too counting the days till spring training, but it will be a long winter.
    Thanks for the kind words, and I'll try to stop by more often.
    Have a wonderful rest of the week.
