Purple Loosestrife

The marshy flowers are appearing again.  I have my out for Jewel weed but the purple loosestrife has popped up in long straight lines among the reeds in the ditch at the east side of the area we walk through.  The flowers are lovely and it’s hard to imagine them all jammed together.  One of the many things I’ve learned from the past year is how often, when I look at something that appears to be one big thing, it is in fact many small things clustered together and it’s necessary to take in the beauty of each of the component parts.
