392.2 Cormorant and Audience 

 

Late May 2009

I was able to make only two visits to the park this period. Burdock is in full leaf, which is to say, exhibits prominently veined leaves nearly 2 feet long.  The link above describes its uses both as food, medicine and the inspiration for 'Velcro'

 At least temporarily, I rescued (if that's the word) the larva at 392.6 from the ants that were digging in their pincers, causing it to squirm in discomfort. Such are the concealed events that mirror our own quest for food.

A beautiful soft green plant, the Sensitive Fern is so called because it's among the first to wilt at an early frost.
