Telltale Flowers

There are times that I see flowers appear and realize they are acting as tell-tales of their surroundings.  I was heading home one evening and saw this purple loosestrife off in the distance.  So I left the path and pushed through the brush, only to find the area was quite marshy under all of the long grass.  There was no other way to tell, really, without standing in it, but the flowers appeared above and showed what the ground would be like.
